Formed in Atlanta in 1996, the Kazanetti String Quartet was appointed in 2008 as The Plaza Arts Center’s Artists-in-Residence. This award-winning group has distinguished itself across the country through its diverse programming and its commitment to excellence. Kazanetti has been honored with a Chamber Music America Rural Residency Grant in 2002.
