About Lux String Quartet:
Lux String Quartet is a Twin-Cities based ensemble, bringing a dynamic edge to performance and education since 2013. Avid recitalists, Lux maintains an active presence in a wide array of musical spheres, from concert halls and churches, to coffee shops and podcasts. Their concert series, “Lattes with Lux,” established an enthusiastic fan base and is currently hosted by several local, independent coffee houses around the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.
Dedicated to music education and instilling a love for their art in the next generation, Lux regularly presents concerts and workshops at elementary schools and early music education programs. Lux served as a 19/20 MPR ClassNotes Artist and continues as a ClassNotes Artist in the 20/21 season. Lux is currently quartet-in-residence at the Colorado Chamber Music Institute, and was quartet-in-residence at the Augsburg University Suzuki Talent Education and the Oskaloosa Music Festival.
Lux has performed in many concert series including the Schubert Club Courtroom Concert Series, the Waverly Chamber Music Series in Waverly, IA, the Lakes Chamber Music Society in Alexandria, MN, and Music @ Lynnhurst in Minneapolis. Each season Lux presents three recitals at The Baroque Room.
A wide spectrum of musical backgrounds and tastes contributes to the group’s creativity, which is reflected in their collaborative projects with other artists. In addition to presenting the classics of the string quartet repertoire, Lux frequently collaborates with living composers such as Minnesota-native David Evan Thomas and Australian Nicholas Vines.
