The Flagler name has long been associated with great music. Henry and Mary Lily Flagler frequently hosted musical performances in Whitehall's elaborate Music Room furnished with a 1,249 pipe J.H. & C.S. Odell & Co. organ and a Steinway upright grand piano. Flagler's son, Henry Harkness Flagler, was chairman of the New York Philharmonic Society. One of Flagler's granddaughters, Jean Flagler Matthews, founded the Flagler Museum, restored Whitehall's elaborate Odell organ and in 1969 brought the New York Philharmonic, conducted by Leonard Bernstein, to South Florida for a Museum benefit concert. Another of Flagler's granddaughters, Mary Flagler Cary, amassed a large collection of original music manuscripts now at the Morgan Library.

The association between the Flagler name and great music continues today in the form of the Flagler Museum Music Series, making it possible to experience chamber music, as it was intended, in the gracious and intimate setting of the Museum's West Room. Regularly featured on National Public Radio, the Flagler Museum Music Series features acclaimed musicians performing music composed prior to 1930 in what critics have described as the finest chamber music venue in South Florida. Audience members are treated to a rare opportunity to meet performers during a champagne & dessert reception following each concert.

The 2017 Series includes concerts by: Dover Quartet (January 10th), Telegraph String Quartet (January 24th), Jolente De Maeyer & Nikolaas Kende (February 7th), Trio Celeste (February 21st), St. Petersburg Piano Quartet (March 7th).

The Telegraph Quartet was formed in 2013 with a passionate commitment to the standard chamber music repertoire as well as contemporary and non-standard repertoire alike. The Telegraph Quartet won the prestigious Grand Prize in the 2014 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition and has gone on to perform in concert halls, music festivals, and academic institutions in the United States, Germany, Italy and France.

The Telegraph Quartet was greatly honored by being the only American quartet of the fifteen invited from around the world to perform in Paris in a showcase for young quartets at the 2016 Biennale de quatuors à cordes (Biennial String Quartet Festival and Symposium).

The quartet's 2015 appearances included a New York début in Carnegie Hall / Weill Recital Hall, a European début in the Emilia Romagna Music Festival (Italy), Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival, Chautauqua Music Festival, Capistrano Chamber Music Festival, Chicago Chamber Music Society, Chamber Music Yellow Springs, and other engagements. Highlights of past seasons include three concerts featured as Guest Artists for the San Francisco Conservatory of Music’s Chamber Music Masters Series, a residency with San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music’s Presidio Sessions, and a tour of the Mid-West states of Indiana, Michigan, and Illinois, sponsored by the Fischoff Foundation. Telegraph has participated in many music festivals, including the Great Lakes Music Festival in Detroit and Robert Mann’s Quartet Seminar at the Manhattan School of Music. The Telegraph Quartet was awarded a grant from the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music to help fund their début CD of string quartets by Webern and Kirchner, to be released in 2016.

The Telegraph Quartet collaborates with pianist Simone DInnerstein, cellist Norman Fischer, and the Henschel Quartett from Germany.

Beyond the concert stage, the Telegraph Quartet seeks to spread its music through education and audience engagement. The Quartet has given master classes at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music’s Collegiate and Pre-College Division as well as the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra. The members of the Quartet hold teaching positions at various music institutions including San Francisco Conservatory of Music’s Chamber Music Program and Young Chamber Musicians in San Francisco’s South Bay.
