Hailed as “the captivating young string quartet” (The Bennington Banner), the Julius Quartet is rapidly making itself known in the chamber music world. Formed in the fall of 2012, the group held a special residency as “The Boston Conservatory’s Honors String Quartet”. Currently, the quartet is the Graduate String Quartet in Residence at the John J. Cali School of Music at Montclair State University, where they work intensely with the celebrated Shanghai Quartet. As passionate chamber musicians, the quartet strives to not only explore the extensive quartet repertoire but also to present their unique voice within the music. Recognized for their high level of artistry, the group was awarded 1st prize at the first annual MA-ASTA String Quartet/Quintet Competition by unanimous vote, and was nominated for the Harvard Musical Association’s Arthur Foote Award.
