This is a return visit to the museum by young Americans who met at the Curtis Institute. After sweeping all prizes at the 2013 Banff String Quartet Competition, The Dover Quartet was named the Cleveland Quartet award-winner and honored with the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant.

The Dover has become one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world. The quartet's rise from up-and-coming young ensemble to occupying a spot at the top of their field has been "practically meteoric" (Strings). With its burnished warmth, incisive rhythms and natural phrasing, the quartet's distinctive sound has helped confirm its status as "the young American string quartet of the moment" (New Yorker). The Quartet serves as the quartet-in-residence for the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University, Chamber Music Northwest, Artosphere, the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival and Peoples' Symphony in New York, and was recently named the first-ever quartet-in-residence for the Kennedy Center. In 2018-19, the Dover Quartet performed more than 100 concerts around North America. According to The Chicago Tribune, "The Dover Quartet players have it in them to become the next Guarneri String Quartet – they're that good."
