Described as “top-notch, intense, stylish, and with an abundance of flair and talent,” the Solera Quartet, Notre Dame's Quartet-in-Residence, is the first prize winner of the 2017 Pro Musicis International Award Competition. In their history-making win, the Solera Quartet is the first and only American chamber ensemble chosen for this distinction. Pro Musicis will present the Solera Quartet in its debut at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Hall and at the Annual Award Gala at The Consulate of France in New York City where the Quartet will be awarded the Father Eugène Merlet Award for Community Service. Other prizes include a state of the art recording at Yamaha Artist Services as well as career development opportunities and numerous other performances.

The Solera Quartet's exciting 2017–2018 season includes a two-disc recording project of under or never recorded works by the Romanian composer, George Enescu, both slated for release on the Naxos label, the world's leading classical music label. As part of these album releases, the quartet will be making its highly-anticipated European debut with concerts planned in Spain and Romania. Join the Solera as they perform Enescu's lushly nostalgic Piano Quintet, Op. 29, featuring guest artist pianist, Josu De Solaun, first prize winner of the XIII George Enescu International Piano Competition.
