The Wister Quartet has earned high praise from critics and audiences alike for its superb musicianship and memorable performances, including those with guest artists Yefim Bronfman, Alicia de Larrocha, Christoph Eschenbach, Wolfgang Sawallisch, and Yo-Yo Ma. Since its beginning in 1987, the Philadelphia-based Quartet was named to honor Frances Anne Wister, founder of the Volunteer Committees of The Philadelphia Orchestra. It has performed throughout the Eastern United States including concerts at Haverford, Swarthmore, Gettysburg, Ursinus, and Gloucester County (NJ) Colleges and has also appeared in concert in China, South America and Europe.

Frequently, the Wister Quartet appears on established series such as those presented by The Chamber Music Society of Bethlehem, the Laurel Hill Concerts by Candlelight in the historic Philadelphia mansion of that name in Fairmount Park, the Glencairn Museum, and Arcadia University. Since its earliest days, the Wister Quartet has been featured on the Philadelphia Orchestra’s Chamber Music Series, and since 1991 in performances on the Lenape Chamber Players Summer Festivals and at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center chamber series.

In 1993 the Wister Quartet established its own Chamber Series of five Sunday afternoon concerts in the historic headquarters of the German Society of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. These feature the great quartet literature as well as unusual and rarely played works. The Quartet is also the core group of the popular Philadelphia chamber ensemble, 1807 & Friends.
