SNCM: Stamps Strings Quartet

Stamps Strings Quartet

The Stamps String Quartet consists of four undergraduate musicians from around the country studying Instrumental Performance at the Frost School of Music as part of the prestigious Stamps Scholars program. Founded by Roe Stamps and the late Penny Stamps, the Stamps Scholars Program is a national undergraduate merit scholarship. Since the Stamps String Quartet was launched in 2018, they have given numerous performances, attending the Castleman Quartet Program, Fredonia, NY, as a pre-formed group, and touring the southeast under the auspices of Young Artist Performances. Currently, the quartet is overseen by Artistic Coordinator Jodi Levitz, and coaches Bettina Mussumeli, Ross Harbaugh and Charles Castleman.

The Stamps Quartet is joined by pianist Piotr Kozlowski for a program of famous piano quintets.

“…It is no surprise that these [undergraduate] musicians are the proud recipients of the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation scholarship for their immense talent and commitment to their craft is evident in every note played.” – Key News
