The Telegraph Quartet was founded in 2013 and quickly rose to become the Quartet in Residence at the prestigious San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Their performances have garnered them accolades and awards including the 2014 Grand Prize at the Fischoff Music Competition and the 2016 Walter W. Naumburg Chamber Music Award. The San Francisco Chronicle calls them “an incredibly valuable addition to the cultural landscape” and “powerfully adept… with a combination of brilliance and subtlety.”

The Quartet (Eric Chin and Joesphy Maile, violins; Pei-Ling, viola; Jerimiah Shaw, cello) has performed in New York City’s Carnegie Hall, San Francisco’s Herbst Theatre, and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music’s Chamber Masters Series and at festivals including the Chautauqua Institute, Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival, and the Emilia Romagna Festival. They have collaborated with cellists Norman Fischer and Bonnie Hampton; violinist Ian Swensen; pianist Simone Dinnerstein; and the Henschel Quartett. A fervent champion of 20th and 21st century repertoire, the Telegraph Quartet has premiered works by John Harbison, Robert Sirota, and Richard Festinger. In 2018, the Quartet released its debut album, Into the Light, featuring works by Anton Webern, Benjamin Britten, and Leon Kirchner on the Centaur Label.

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Quartet is currently on faculty at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music as their Quartet-in-Residence and has given master classes at the SFCM Collegiate and Pre-Collegiate Divisions, at San Francisco State University, and abroad at the Taipei National University of the Arts and National Taiwan Normal University.
