Sheila Browne has also been named the new Assistant Professor of Viola at University of Delaware's Department of Music. She joins both the University and the Quartet from her position at University of North Carolina School of the Arts, where she has been on the faculty for ten years.




Serafin String Quartet is going beyond the family concert to make a deeper connection with audiences. Read more in this All Things Strings article.
