Artaria's organizational goals are centered around chamber music performance and teaching in Minnesota.

Artaria engages its resident quartet (Artaria String Quartet) and their associates to teach and perform the great chamber music repertoire for Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin audiences. Each year we develop a regional residency for the Artaria String Quartet in contact with under-served audiences across Minnesota. The Artaria chamber music school attracts young string payers from across the region to rehearse and prepare six concerts each year (there are also numerous outreach performances). Stringwood Chamber Music Festival brings Artaria's performing and educational programming to rural SE Minnesota audiences. The annual Saint Paul String Quartet Competition attracts young musicians from across the US to come to St Paul and perform.

Now beginning its 32nd season, the Artaria String Quartet was recently lauded by Rob Hubbard of the St. Paul Pioneer Press -- “Artaria Quartet is likely to give eloquent voice to whatever work it tackles." Artaria has served as Minnesota Public Radio's Artists-in-Residence and was featured on Twin Cities Public Television as part of the series. The quartet has appeared at major summer festivals including the Banff Centre in Canada, Festival de L'Epau in France, and the Tanglewood Music Center in Lenox, MA. Artaria is the recipient of a McKnight Fellowship for Performing Musicians, as well as grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, Chamber Music America, Midori's Partners in Performance, the Heartland Fund and the Southeast Minnesota Arts Council for performance and educational outreach.

Progress for Artaria will come in the form of increased Stringwood and Artaria Chamber Music School tuition as well as increased Artaria concert performance opportunities and revenue.

Artaria would like to provide a larger regular income to the Artaria String Quartet. We would also like to provide more access to educational programs through more outreach performances and more scholarship aid for students applying to our ACMS and Stringwood programs. We would also like to add an outreach element to the Saint Paul String Quartet Competition so that the visiting quartets could meet Minnesota students and vice versa.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
