Celebrating its 18th anniversary season, the Euclid Quartet enjoys one of the most highly regarded reputations of any contemporary chamber ensemble of its generation, with its musicians representing four continents: violinist Jameson Cooper (Great Britain), violinist Brendan Shea (United States), violist Luis Enrique Vargas (Venezuela) and cellist Jacqueline Choi (South Korea).

Euclid Quartet’s career highlights include becoming the first American string quartet to be awarded a top prize at the prestigious Osaka International Chamber Music Competition. Prior to its Japanese laurels, the quartet also won awards in numerous United States competitions, including the Hugo Kauder International Competition for String Quartets, The Carmel Chamber Music Competition and the Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition. In 2009 the Euclid Quartet was awarded the esteemed American Masterpieces grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
