Verona Quartet

  • Quartet-in-Residence and Artist-Teachers

Biography

The Verona Quartet has earned acclaim for its championing of contemporary repertoire and composers, as well as its numerous interdisciplinary collaborations—among them performances with Dance Heginbotham of New York City, an artistic exchange with poets from the United Arab Emirates, and performances with the folk trio I’m With Her, made possible through the Kennedy Center’s Direct Current Festival.

Hailed as “outstanding” by The New York Times, the Verona Quartet won the 2015 Concert Artist Guild competition and has performed in such famed venues as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and Wigmore Hall. In 2020, the ensemble was honored with Chamber Music America’s Cleveland Quartet Award.

The quartet consists of violinists Jonathan Ong and Dorothy Ro, violist Abigail Rojansky, and cellist Jonathan Dormand. Rojansky is a 2011 graduate of Oberlin Conservatory.
