Kazanetti String Quartet

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. Concurrent with that grant, Kazanetti toured the Great American West – performing in colleges, schools, festivals and concert halls in Kansas and Colorado. The quartet has been invited to study and perform at the annual Kent Music Festival sponsored by the Manhattan String Quartet, and in 2003, Kazanetti was the opening act at the nationally renowned Silverton Folk Festival.
