The Belden consists of Alex Russell, Violin Professor at Azusa Pacific University, Clifton Antoine, Teaching Assistant at PSU, Maria Crosby, Finalist of the H.A.M.S. Cello Competition and Hannah Yi, Piano Falculty at Azusa Pacific.
The group is now based in Los Angeles, but got its start in Chicago when three of its members were studying at De Paul University School of Music on Belden Avenue, from which the quartet derives its name. Their aim is to provide high-quality musical experiences in a freer and more spontaneous setting than is usually available to the classical musician of today.
