Lott String Quartet

Wednesday, June 1, 2022 at 7 p.m.
Minsky Recital Hall

The Lott Quartet was founded around a mutual love of chamber music and a deep desire to reach audiences with engaging and insightful programming. Based in New Orleans, the Lotts are committed to contributing towards and building on the storied musical history of their hometown. The Lott Quartet takes their name from 19th-century violinmaker John Lott.

Recently appointed as String Quartet-in-Residence at the University of New Orleans, the Lott Quartet begins a role as musical ambassadors to the greater Southeast region, bringing their passion as performers and educators to audiences and students throughout the Gulf region. The Lott Quartet’s members are individually members of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, the Gulf region’s only full-time professional orchestra, and have studied chamber music with some of the world’s finest chamber musicians, including members of the Juilliard, Guarneri, Cleveland, Brentano, Miro and St. Lawrence String Quartets.
