The West End String Quartet is a group of musicians who share a passion for chamber music and are advocates for contemporary music. They strive to bring new and uncommon repertoire to their concerts, pairing them with traditional works.

Dedicated teachers as well, the quartet leads the chamber music program at Wesleyan University, and presents a series of chamber music masterclasses at The Hartt School Community Division. Members of the quartet teach individually at The Hartt School Community Division, Baypath College, Three Rivers Community College, Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts, The David Einfeldt Chamber Music Seminar at Hartt, and Strings by the Sea in San Diego, and perform in Hartford, Springfield, New Haven, Vermont, Eastern Connecticut and Waterbury Symphony Orchestras.
