As a passionate supporter of music education, the Calidore String Quartet is committed to mentoring and educating young musicians, students and audiences.

Using an amalgamation of 'California' and 'doré' (French for 'golden'), the ensemble’s name represents a reverence for the diversity of culture and the strong support it received from its home of origin, Los Angeles, California, the 'golden state'.
The Calidore String Quartet would like to sincerely thank Sam and Lyndie Ersan, the Borletti-Buitoni Trust, and BBC Radio 3 for their contributions towards this album. It is through their support and encouragement that we are able to share our artistic voice with the world in this important project. Resilience is dedicated to our sponsors, friends, family, and all artists who strive to find their voice in an often cacophonous and conflicted world.
