The Ruth Widder String Quartet Competition, funded by the Widder Foundation in consultation with faculty member Laurie Carney, honors the memory of Ruth Widder, whose lifetime of generosity to Manhattan School of Music, the American String Quartet, and other arts institutions has had a lasting effect on the cultural life of New York. The competition was created in 2015 to encourage high-level study of the string quartet literature by MSM students, and is open to quartets of current students who have played together for at least two semesters.
Manhattan School of Music’s public programs are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
