“[Invoke’s music] sounds impeccable without losing its sense of lightness and joy — no small feat.”

NPR Music

Described as “…not anything but everything: Classical, Folk, Bluegrass, Americana and a sound yet to be termed seamlessly merged into a perfect one” (David Srebnik, SiriusXM Classical Producer), Invoke strives to successfully dodge even the most valiant attempts at genre classification. Strings Magazine observes, “the remarkable string quartet Invoke has repeatedly proven one thing over its first 11 years: it simply cannot be contained by any one label.”

The multi-instrumental quartet encompasses traditions from across America, including bluegrass, Appalachian fiddle tunes, jazz, and minimalism. Fueled by their passion for storytelling, Invoke weaves all of these styles together to form a unique contemporary repertoire, featuring original works composed by and for the group.

Since being selected as Interlochen’s Emerging Artists Quartet in 2014, Invoke has been a featured artist and on faculty at the Interlochen Adult Chamber Music Camp. The group also was selected as an Artist in Residence at Strathmore and the Fellowship String Quartet at Wintergreen Performing Arts. In 2018, Invoke was named a winner of the Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition in New York; was awarded First Prize at the M-Prize International Chamber Arts competition in Ann Arbor; and received First Prize in the Coltman Competition in Austin, Texas.
