The Blair String Quartet has won wide critical praise, with performances across the United States and appearances at the Library of Congress, the Kennedy Center, New York’s 92nd Street Y and Merkin Concert Hall. Residencies have included the Aspen Music Festival, the Sedona Chamber Music Festival, the Irving S. Gilmore International Keyboard Festival, the Colorado Music Festival, the Classical Fellowship Awards of the American Pianists Association, and the Meadowmount School of Music. The ensemble’s recordings of Mendelssohn, Debussy, Ginastera, Harris, Piston, Proto, and Virgil Thomson have been praised internationally by leading publications, including The Gramophone, Stereo Review, and American Record Guide. Renowned interpreters of the standard repertoire, the Blair Quartet has presented cycles of the complete quartets of Beethoven and Bartók. They have also championed music by contemporary composers, including works written for them by Morton Subotnick, George Tsontakis, Ellsworth Milburn, Michael Alec Rose, Rodney Lister, and Michael Kurek. The Quintet for Banjo and String Quartet, composed for them by Edgar Meyer and Bela Fleck, has been featured nationally on the PBS series, Lonesome Pine Special. The Blair String Quartet is in residence at the Blair School of Music of Vanderbilt University. The members of the ensemble are Christian Teal and Cornelia Heard, violins, John Kochanowski, viola, and Felix Wang, cello.
