About Us

First Prize winners of the String and Piano Division at the 2013 Plowman Chamber Music Competition.

Biography

Known for its passionate performances and unified sound, Altius Quartet is quickly becoming one of Dallas' premiere string quartets. The group formed in 2011 with the purpose of performing with Bridge the Gap Chamber Players and has since become the resident string quartet of the festival. The quartet has also performed for the most respected string quartets and pedagogues in classical music including the Miro and Shanghai Quartets, Tim Ying, Matt Albert, James Dunham, Kenneth Goldsmith, Emanuel Borok, Andres Diaz, and Roberto Diaz.

During their first full season, Altius Quartet performed extensively in Texas and Oklahoma and toured in Colorado, where they served as the resident string quartet of the Western Slope Concert Series. In addition, they also participated in the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, were finalists at the Coleman Chamber Music Competition, and won first prize in the String and Piano Division of the 2013 Plowman Chamber Music Competition. Collectively, the members of the quartet hold performance degrees from Southern Methodist, Colorado, and Indiana Universities. Altius Quartet was recently named the first Graduate String Quartet-in-Residence at Southern Methodist University's Meadows School of the Arts. The residency will begin in the fall of 2013.
