The quartet’s passionate energy is poured into everything they do, generating critical and audience acclaim for their "Classical Roots with Latin Soul." Its tours include appearances for distinguished chamber music and cultural center series in the U.S., Canada and South America, including New York, Philadelphia and Toronto.

Members of the Dalí Quartet are from Venezuela, Puerto Rico and the US, and have studied at esteemed institutions such as the Cleveland Institute of Music, Yale University, Indiana University Bloomington and the Simón Bolivar Conservatory in Caracas, Venezuela.

In addition to works of the masters from Haydn to Brahms and Amaya to Piazzolla, the group's adventurous and entertaining programming includes new works for quartet with percussionist Orlando Cotto, and quintets both Latin and Classical with the renowned clarinetist Ricardo Morales, principal clarinetist of The Philadelphia Orchestra, and with acclaimed pianist Vanessa Perez.
