The Orion String Quartet is one of the most sought-after quartets in the United States. Since its inception, the quartet has been consistently praised for the fresh perspective and individuality it brings to performances, offering diverse programs that juxtapose classic masterpieces with notable works by living composers. With over fifty performances each year, the members of the Orion String Quartet - violinists Daniel Phillips and Todd Phillips (brothers who share the first violin chair equally), violist Steven Tenenbom, and cellist Timothy Eddy – remain on the cutting edge of programming and serve as Artist Members of Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.
