In 2017-18 the Daedalus Quartet--the quartet in residence in the Music Department since 2006--performed Philadelphia’s first-ever complete Beethoven quartet cycle at the University of Pennsylvania. With concerts at a variety of venues around campus as well as a number of cross-disciplinary events, the Quartet was able to reach a wide swath of the Penn community and give listeners many different entry points through which to engage with the music.
