In 2014 the Calidore became artists-in-residence and visiting faculty at Stony Brook University. September 2014 marks the release of their debut album featuring works by Mendelssohn and Haydn.
Within two years of their inception, the Calidore String Quartet won grand prize in virtually all major American chamber music competitions including the Fischoff, Coleman, Chesapeake and Yellow Springs competitions. Internationally they captured top prizes at the 2012 ARD Munich International String Quartet Competition and the 2012 Hamburg International Chamber Music Competition.
