The Wichita String Quartet was founded by Jan Ekstedt, who also founded the Seattle String Quartet, in 1999.
Jan and his wife, Elaine, created Ekstedt Entertainment, the Seattle String Quartet and related ensembles, to help put him through seminary. He now pastors New Hope Christian Church (DOC) in Wichita and is concert master of the Delano Chamber Orchestra.
He now offers the Wichita String Quartet, an association of musicians of the same quality and professionalism as the Seattle String Quartet, who perform in the Wichita Symphony Orchestra. The Wichita String Quartet and related ensembles, offer the same extensive repertoire as the Seattle ensembles.
Price Range: $150 - $750
