The Telegraph Quartet (Eric Chin and Joseph Maile, violins; Pei-Ling Lin, viola; Jeremiah Shaw, cello) formed in 2013 with an equal passion for the standard chamber music repertoire and contemporary, non-standard works alike.

Described by the San Francisco Chronicle as “…an incredibly valuable addition to the cultural landscape” and “powerfully adept … with a combination of brilliance and subtlety,” the Telegraph Quartet was awarded the prestigious 2016 Walter W. Naumburg Chamber Music Award and the Grand Prize at the 2014 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition.

The Quartet has performed in concert halls, music festivals, and academic institutions across the United States and abroad, including New York City’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, San Francisco’s Herbst Theatre, the San Francisco Conservatory of Music’s Chamber Masters Series, and at festivals including the Chautauqua Institute, Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival, and the Emilia Romagna Festival.

The Quartet is currently on the chamber music faculty at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music as the Quartet-in-Residence.

“We are greatly looking forward to sharing our ‘Return to Life’ program with the Ukiah Community Concert Association,” The Quartet said. “Like so many other local bedrock chamber series, the Community Concert Association has had to adapt, innovate, and sometimes just weather the storm during the vicissitudes of the pandemic. Our hope is that, as we see the final light at the end of the pandemic tunnel this season, we will be able to share music that both mirrors the struggle of these challenges but also rejoices in the overcoming of them and allows us to appreciate how valuable the Association is for providing what we missed sorely during our isolation: real tangible music that you can feel vibrating in a space.”
