It's safe to say that the Emerson String Quartet is among the top such ensembles on the planet. In their more than three decades of existence, the Emerson's  achievements include more than thirty acclaimed recordings, nine Grammys, the Avery Fisher Prize, Musical America's "Ensemble of the Year" and collaborations with many of the greatest artists of our time. The Emerson Quartet performs as part of the University Musical Society series at Ann Arbor's Rackham Auditorium this Saturday night at 8 p.m.

Current State's Peter Whorf speaks with cellist Paul Watkins, to preview Saturday's performance and to reflect on his early days with the group when he first joined two years ago. Listen to the Lansing, Michigan: WKAR interview.
