Long-cultivated cohesion — along with their considerable chops — makes the Delgani one of the state’s preeminent regularly performing classical-music institutions

San Francisco Classical Voice

Called “the state’s finest chamber ensemble” by Oregon Arts Watch, the Delgani String Quartet presents exciting performances of both classic and contemporary repertoire in intimate concert settings. The quartet curates their own subscription series in Portland, Salem, and Eugene while regularly appearing as guest artists throughout the state. Delgani has also performed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC and at Charles University in Prague.

Committed to community engagement, Delgani provides educational opportunities to students throughout the Willamette Valley. The quartet’s Classical Spark program brings the string quartet to third grade classrooms in Lane County to foster an early interest in music. Each summer, Delgani manages a Chamber Music Camp for all instruments for middle and high school students in Eugene and a Summer Quartet Academy in Cottage Grove, Oregon. Delgani also hosts biannual Adult Chamber Music Workshops for amateur enthusiasts and curates an adult education series prior to each subscription series concert.
