The Verona Quartet was the winner of the 2015 Concert Artists Guild Competition, and in just three years, has earned a stellar reputation for delivering a “sensational, powerhouse performance” (Classical Voice America) every time they take the stage. Musical America selected the group as “New Artists of the Month” for May 2016, further setting the Verona Quartet apart as one of the most compelling young quartets in chamber music.
The quartet has performed across four continents in venues such as Wigmore Hall, Izumi Hall, the Melbourne Recital Hall, Carnegie Hall and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. They have also appeared on National Public Radio, The Weekly Special on PBS, and Abu Dhabi Classical FM.
