About the Marian Anderson String Quartet
Starting as street performers in New York, the Marian Anderson Quartet's bold musicmaking embraces the classical tradition and infuses it with the richness of the African-American experience. The quartet, named for the celebrated contralto who shattered racial barriers, was the first African-American ensemble in history to win a major classical music competition. Their repertoire includes rarely heard classical compositions by Black composers and contemporary arrangements of Negro spirituals.
