True superstars of the classical world, the Emerson String Quartet returns for the 36th year to Washington, DC's Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History for a series of concerts boasting the best in chamber music by greats including Beethoven, Brahms, Bach and beyond. Declared "the one indispensable quartet" by Newsweek, the ESQ has won nine Grammy Awards -- including two for Best Classical Album -- and the coveted Avery Fisher Prize. The acclaimed ensemble, now featuring violinists Eugene Drucker and Philip Setzer, violist Lawrence Dutton and cellist Paul Watkins, were recently inducted into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame, and their live performances are more electrifying than ever.
