The Hausmann Quartet has established itself as an integral part of the cultural life of Southern California since its arrival in San Diego in 2010. As faculty Artists-in-Residence at San Diego State University they teach and organize the chamber music program and present Converge, a quarterly interdisciplinary concert series on campus. They have pioneered interactive programs for students, adult amateur musicians and local seniors and homeless as Ensemble-in-Residence at Mainly Mozart with support from the Irvine Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts and ACMP. Founded in the summer of 2004 at Lyricafest, they have recently been hailed as “Excellent” by U-T San Diego and “an accomplished young foursome with a luscious sound and an experimental bent” (Repeat Performances), and maintain an active performance schedule throughout North America and Asia. The members of the Hausmann Quartet are violinists Isaac Allen and Melody Chang, violist Angela Choong and cellist Alex Greenbaum.
