Performance Update

Due to illness, the Juilliard String Quartet was not able to perform their scheduled concert on Saturday, March 16. Cellist Astrid Schween replaced the group in recital with pianist Michael Gurt, performing a beautiful program.

New York born cellist Astrid Schween is an internationally recognized soloist, chamber artist, and teacher. She joined the Juilliard String Quartet in 2016, succeeding her esteemed colleague Joel Krosnick, and became a member of the Juilliard Cello Faculty.

An active juror and panelist, she has been featured in Strings and The Strad magazines, on The Violin Channel, “Living the Classical Life,” NPR, CelloBello, and as a guest speaker at the Library of Congress.

Following the release of her solo cello album, "Rhapsody," Ms. Schween's current recording project covers the major Romantic cello sonatas with pianist Michael Gurt, Paula Garvey Manship Distinguished Professor of Piano at Louisiana State University.
