Based in Ann Arbor, the Amatista Quartet formed as students at the University of Michigan and have been playing together for two years under the guidance of Andrew Jennings. The quartet represents a rich variety of musical and personal backgrounds, and their shared passion for string quartet repertoire has brought them from the music of Joseph Haydn to Silvestre Revueltas. The Amatista Quartet has a special mission to perform and promote the music of Latin-American composers, and is determined to share this mission in its educational and artistic pursuits.
