The Muir Quartet is one of the world's great string quartets, and we are especially proud to present them in the Billings-Red Lodge area in cooperation with the Montana Chamber Music Society. This superb musical group has been heard frequently in Western Montana, largely through the dedication of Montana native and alumnus of the Red Lodge Music Festival, cellist Michael Reynolds.

Angella Ahn is well known to local audiences as the professor of violin and viola at Montana State University, as well as the violinist of the highly acclaimed Ahn Trio.  The three sisters of the Trio have won high accolades and awards for their recordings, and have thrilled and challenged music lovers with their concerts in all 50 States and over 30 countries worldwide.

The Muir Quartet performance in the FRINGE series, of February 2015, at Montana State University Billings, was one of the outstanding concerts of the year.  Don't miss them this year!
The Muir–based in the Boston Area–have performed together for 35 years, winning acclaim from all over the world.  Among the prestigious awards they have received have been
  • 1981 Naumberg Chamber Music Award
