One of the world’s distinguished string quartets, the Pro Arte Quartet maintains a three-fold commitment to the performance of chamber music. The quartet promotes an exciting balance of old and new repertoire, seeking opportunities to commission and premiere works of living composers in a variety of contemporary styles. It seeks to broaden the audience for string chamber music through a full schedule of concerts, tours, recordings, and broadcasts, forging a passionate connection with audiences of diverse backgrounds. The Pro Arte Quartet also honors its past as the first ensemble-in-residence at a major American university, serving the UW-Madison with full appointments, combining performance, education, and service to the state. The Pro Arte Quartet is comprised of violinists David Perry and Suzanne Beia, violist Sally Chisholm, and cellist Parry Karp.
