Congratulations to LMC Alumnus cellist Yoshika Masuda on this exciting new project.............We have some very exciting news to share❗️❗️

After many months of planning, we are thrilled to welcome violinist Jason Issokson and cellist Yoshi Masuda to the RSQ family! They are both incredibly accomplished musicians, and they are already bringing a fantastic new energy, inspiration and passion to the group. We’ve been working on loads of great music and projects (no easy task in these challenging times!) and we can’t wait to share it all with you.

We would like to thank Jonathan and Emily for our incredible journey together through these years, and wish them the very best as they embark on new musical journeys. They have put an indelible stamp on this ensemble and have contributed so much to this Quartet both artistically and personally - they will be dearly missed.❤️

Follow us on our updated website www.rolstonstringquartet.com to keep up to date with our upcoming concerts! ��

And until you have a chance to see us live, we hope you enjoy this recent recording of the first movement of Beethoven’s String Quartet Opus 59, No. 1 - don’t worry, we quarantined together for two full weeks before recording it! Thank you Stelth Ng & Matt Antal for the incredible video and audio. 😍 www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcHKQQLh1J0
