In 2005, the Quartet became the first recipient of the Guarneri String Quartet Residency Award from Chamber Music America.
The Cavani Quartet has established itself as a dynamic leader in the field of arts in education, and has received a number of Chamber Music America Residency Partnership Grants. Nationally acclaimed for their inspiring and innovative teaching and proactive approach to residencies, the Quartet has developed creative programs for audiences of all ages, including a series of children’s concerts for the Chamber Music of Lincoln Center. Formed in 1984, the Cavani Quartet was appointed Quartet-in-Residence at the Cleveland Institute of Music in 1988.
