The Miró Quartet performs an all-Schubert program (Franz Schubert, 1797-1828) in historic studio 6A. The Miró Quartet is an internationally performing professional classical string quartet based in Austin, Texas. The group is the Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Texas and its members are on the faculty of the Butler School of Music.

Founded in 1995 at the Oberlin Conservatory, the Miró Quartet met immediate success winning first prize at the 50th annual Coleman Chamber Music Competition in April 1996, and taking both the first and grand prize at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition two months later. In 2005, the Lincoln Center awarded them with the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant, making the Quartet the first ensemble to win the award.
