ROSSMOOR CHAMBER MUSIC SOCIETY
We are dedicating the 2017–2018 chamber Music season to the memory of Betty Barron,
formerly the Vice President of RCMS and the guiding light of our program for the past decade.
Founded by composer, arranger, and Bay Area native Jeremy Cohen, Quartet San Francisco is a group of classically trained musicians whose mission is to introduce a fresh, vibrant body of string quartet literature—new works that expand the reaches of chamber music. Since 2000, QSF has introduced over 100 new works to the string quartet literature. They are committed to excellence in their playing, and their material is inspired by cultures near and far. For Rossmoor they have put together an exciting and innovative program, "Globe Trotting with Quartet San Francisco," featuring compositions and arrangements from cultures around the world.
