The Aeolus Quartet are Grand Prize winners of the 2011 Plowman Chamber Music Competition and 2011 Yellow Springs Chamber Music Competition, and were awarded First Prize for Strings at the 2009 Coleman International Chamber Music Competition. Beginning in August 2013, Aeolus will be currently the Graduate Quartet in Residence at the Juilliard School.
The Aeolus Quartet is extremely honored to have recently received two prestigious awards: the Fischoff Educator Award, which honors Fischoff Competition alumni who have demonstrated outstanding and imaginative programming for children and youth in the United States, and the John Lad Prize, given by the St. Lawrence Quartet for Aeolus' "high level of musicianship and also for the passion, the dedication, and the great generosity of spirit, they have demonstrated en route to becoming true ambassadors of chamber music.” Check out a sample of our recent outreach performance at Puyallup High School in beautiful Washington State!
