Violist Edwin Kaplan and cellist Serafim Smigelskiy join Tesla Quartet
We are pleased to announce the appointment of two new members to the Tesla Quartet: Edwin Kaplan, viola, and Serafim Smigelskiy, cello. After five years with the Tesla Quartet, founding members Megan Mason and Kimberly Patterson have decided to take their musical careers in other directions and pursue new and exciting ventures. Our first five years together were full of great achievements, including competition prizes, international performances, and our graduate residency at the University of Colorado. We are immensely grateful to Megan and Kim for their dedication and inspiration over the years, and we know the future will be bright for both of them. We wish them the very best!
We are also very excited to begin this new chapter with Edwin and Serafim. Both bring a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to the group, and we already have a lot of new projects and plans in the works.
Thank you for your ongoing support of the Tesla Quartet. We look forward to performing for you in the future!
P.S. There is more BIG news coming Tuesday, so stay tuned!
