New Hollywood String Quartet

The New Hollywood String Quartet had its debut concert in Los Angeles on Jan. 9, 2001 and has been performing to critical acclaim ever since. Inspired by the great Hollywood String Quartet from over half a century ago, the current members of the NHSQ are likewise premiere performers of their generation. Individually, and together as one of the top string quartets in Southern California, they are well known guests at many of the most prestigious concert series in Los Angeles and its environs.

It’s members reside in Los Angeles and have recorded hundreds of film scores, are members of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and have decades of chamber music experience between them. The NHSQ was also recently featured on the Grammy Nominated Disc, “Passing Through” performing Gernot Wolfgang’s “String Theory” for String Quartet.

In their 12th year as the Quartet in Residence at the Restoration Concert Series, the NHSQ is proud to launch their inaugural summer festival, this year entitled “Summer of Brahms Chamber Music Festival”. This first festival will present all twenty-five of the instrumental chamber works of Johannes Brahms in collaboration with some of the world’s most renowned chamber musicians. Each subsequent summer will focus on a different composer. Our 2020 Festival will celebrate the 250th Birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven. So stay tuned!
