Peachtree String Quartet

Peachtree String Quartet


The Peachtree String Quartet was formed in 2012. Our Atlanta's most accomplished string musicians are Christopher Pulgram (director), Sissi Yuqing Zhang, Yang-Yoon Kim and Thomas Carpenter.

All four are distinguished members of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and have performed around the world as soloists and chamber musicians.

PSQ brings an innovative approach to Atlanta's chamber music scene – a clear focus on string quartet music. The group seeks to return chamber music to its purest form: the same two violinists, violist and cellist playing the greatest chamber music ever written for all kinds of people in intimate settings. (The group's home base is the welcoming and woodsy Garden Hills Recreation Center, a stone's throw from its director's house.) For many, PSQ opens the door to string quartet music they haven't yet had a chance to encounter and enjoy.

Concerts feature both well-loved and rarely-heard selections to delight and move audiences. The group's repertoire spans 300 years and includes works written as recently as last year.
