Recognized as “thoughtful, impressive musicians” (Cleveland Classical), the Verona Quartet is a winner of the 2015 Concert Artists Guild Competition.

2017-18 season highlights include the Verona Quartet’s Kennedy Center debut presented by Washington Performing Arts, as well as concerts spanning the US from New York (Museum of Modern Art and Merkin Concert Hall) to San Francisco (Morrison Arts Series at SFSU). Also for 2017-2018 season, the Verona Quartet has been selected by New York’s Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts for its Ernst Stiefel String Quartet Residency, including two extended educational residencies and three performances, including the 2018 Caramoor Summer Festival.

Beginning in fall 2017, the Verona Quartet will also be in residence at the New England Conservatory of Music for NEC’s Professional String Quartet Training program, under the mentorship of Paul Katz. This two-year program also features an annual recital in Jordan Hall, as well as numerous performances in and around Boston. This follows VQ’s two seasons as Graduate Resident String Quartet at The Juilliard School, where they worked closely with members of the Juilliard String Quartet.

The Verona Quartet has performed across four continents in venues such as Wigmore Hall (London, UK), Izumi Hall (Osaka, Japan), the National Theatre (Abu Dhabi, UAE), Melbourne Recital Hall (Melbourne, Australia), and, in New York City, at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center. Strongly committed to education, they have been on the faculty of the Indiana University Summer String Academy as Quartet-in-Residence since 2016, and recent international educational residencies include: the Beethoven-Haus (Bonn, Germany); Oberlin Conservatory of Music; New York University-Abu Dhabi, and Lunenberg Academy of Music Performance (Nova Scotia). They have also appeared on National Public Radio, WQXR, WFMT, The Weekly Special on PBS, and Abu Dhabi Classical FM.
