Szekely joined MU’s faculty in 1976. What has kept her at the university, more than anything else, is the Esterhàzy Quartet, a world-class chamber string ensemble that has been in residence at MU’s School of Music for three decades. “The Esterhàzy Quartet is a big part of the reason that the School of Music at the University of Missouri is such a special place,” Szekely says, “and it’s certainly the main reason that I have been here as long as I have.”
