The Pro Arte Quartet (PAQ) is one of the world’s most distinguished string quartets. Founded by conservatory students in Brussels in 1912, it became one of the most celebrated ensembles in Europe in the first half of the 20th century. Its world reputation blossomed in 1919 when the quartet began the first of many tours, making its New York debut in 1926 and touring the United States, Europe, and Asia. The quartet was performing in Madison, Wisconsin, in May 1940 when Nazi forces invaded Belgium, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison responded to the emergency by offering the quartet a permanent campus home, making it the first such arrangement at a major American university.
