The Takàcs Society
In addition to being one of the preeminent quartets in the world, the Takács Quartet has helped to develop a string program with a special emphasis on chamber music where, in a small tightly knit community, students work in a nurturing environment best designed to help them develop their artistry. The Quartet’s commitment to teaching is enhanced by summer residencies at the Aspen Music Festival and at the Music Academy of the West, Santa Barbara. The Takács Society exists to further the work of the quartet at the College of Music.
The Takács Society at the College of Music provides the resources critical to supporting the work of the Takács String Quartet—to advance their teaching endeavors, sponsor guest artists in the Takács performance series, and fund outreach activities.
Partners in Excellence
Donors to the Takács Society provide resources to expand the graduate string quartet program at the CU College of Music, and scholarships and fellowships to attract and reward the best and brightest students in string studies.

“They are peerless…The combination of glowing tone-colours and impeccable technical control is in itself captivating, but it is the compelling immediacy of the Takács’s playing that engages one in every moment.”
