Cardamom Quartet is a Boston-based ensemble engaged in reimagining the traditional canon and committed to sharing music with a wide variety of audiences.
The quartet performs new and old works, with a focus on music of women and non-binary composers, including pieces written by members of the ensemble. Cardamom Quartet has performed in libraries, art galleries, houses of worship, senior centers, school programs, farmers’ markets, and living rooms throughout New England. In 2018, the group received a grant from The Boston Foundation to perform at organizations serving women in need in the Boston area, and their cellist won the New England Conservatory Alumni Award on behalf of the quartet. In 2017, they led an art-science residency with students at Boston Arts Academy, funded by a grant from the City of Boston & Boston Cultural Council. Cardamom Quartet has been featured on multiple series at the Boston Public Library and in a 2018 article in the Journal of the International Alliance for Women in Music. In 2015 and 2016, they completed residencies at Avaloch Farm Music Institute and were the 2014 string quartet in residence at El Sistema Somerville, an immersive after-school music program for elementary school students.
