ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The Calidore String Quartet has won the $100,000 grand prize at a new competition to identify and showcase the highest caliber of chamber music ensembles.

The University of Michigan’s M-Prize competition hosted by the School of Music, Theatre & Dance wrapped up Thursday. Members of the Calidore String Quartet currently are artists-in-residence and visiting faculty at Stony Brook University in New York.

Jeremy Berry, who plays viola in the quartet, told The Ann Arbor News (https://bit.ly/1rYvIA4 ) he’s “stunned.”

Other quartet members are Jeff Myers and Ryan Meehan, who play violin, and Estelle Choi, who plays cello.

The competition included two divisions and three categories: strings, woodwinds and open instrumentation. Twenty-nine groups representing three countries and 17 states were selected to participate in the semifinal and final rounds.
