 FryStreet String Quartet

A recent defining endeavor was the quartet’s first complete Beethoven Quartet Cycle. A sold-out event with pre-concert lectures by renowned scholar Robert Winter, the Cycle was presented at Utah State University over the course of two weeks, offering the audience a Beethoven-immersion experience. 

In 2002, at the invitation of Utah State University and the Caine Foundation, the Fry Street Quartet arrived in Logan. The task was to build a performance-based approach to a string program in its infancy. In 2012, the landscape is much transformed. This marks the tenth season for what has become an extraordinary collaboration.  The resulting transformation is now a vibrant center for string performance in the Intermountain Region with an emerging group of performers, established and internationally recognized.

Violinist Robert Waters has concertized throughout the U.S. and abroad. In 2008, he was appointed Concertmaster of Chicago's acclaimed orchestral/choral ensemble, Music of the Baroque. Mr. Waters has also served as Associate Professor of Violin at the DePaul University School of Music in Chicago and as Associate Concertmaster of the San Francisco Opera Orchestra.

Violinist Rebecca McFaul has toured North and South America, the Balkan States, Austria, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, and Israel as soloist and chamber musician. At age 15, Rebecca spent the summer at Tanglewood in the presence of great artists such as Leonard Bernstein and Yo Yo Ma.  Rebecca is an Assistant Professor of Professional Practice at the Caine College of the Arts, Utah State University,

Violist Bradley Ottesen served four seasons as assistant principal violist with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra in Alberta, Canada.  He currently teaches on the string and chamber music faculty of the Caine College of the Arts at Utah State University. He holds a master’s degree from the New England Conservatory and a bachelor’s from Northwestern University.

Cellist Anne Francis Bayless has performed in venues from Carnegie Hall in New York to a Maori Longhouse in New Zealand, firmly establishing herself as a leading educator and artist of her generation.  She began playing the cello when she was four years old and later became one of the youngest members of the Kalamazoo Symphony, performing in the cello section while still in high school. Anne currently teaches on the faculty of the Caine College of the Arts at Utah State University.
