Lark Congratulates Former Cellist Astrid Schween

Astrid Schween

The Lark Quartet is thrilled for Astrid Schween – former cellist of the Lark for 25 years, who will soon be joining the Juilliard Quartet. This is truly wonderful news and all of us with Lark, Debbie, Basia, Carrie, and Kathryn, could not be happier for her.

Debbie and Kathryn worked with Astrid for five years in the Lark Quartet and have many wonderful memories of that time together. Astrid is not only an amazing cellist with a huge and beautiful warm sound, but an inspiring human being and colleague with whom to have shared a portion of our musical life. Her dedication and commitment to the highest level of string quartet performance was a driving force in our history together.

A Big CONGRATULATIONS to our dear Astrid.
