Altius Quartet


Altius Quartet is an ensemble determined to further the art of chamber music through performance, education, and outreach. Deriving their name from the Olympic motto: Citius, Altius, Fortius (Latin for Faster, Higher, Stronger); Altius strives to communicate art to a more diverse audience through community engagement and innovative repertoire. Hailed as "rich" and "captivating" by the renowned music blog, "I Care If You Listen," the Altius Quartet is garnering an international reputation and enrapturing the hearts of audiences through their charisma and dynamism.  Having just released their debut album, “Dress Code,” Altius is receiving critical praise for their musicianship and versatility.

Altius Quartet is deeply committed to outreach, often performing concerts and teaching master classes in public schools and alternative performing venues including: jazz clubs, bars, and cafes. In 2014, the quartet partnered with the Aspen Music Festival and School for annual educational outreach residencies throughout the Roaring Fork. And beginning in 2016, Altius has worked alongside Denver Friends of Chamber Music and Arts Longmont performing outreach events for school children spanning the entire Denver/Boulder metroplex.

When not recording or performing, Altius Quartet enjoys experiencing the great outdoors and friendly rivalry in their Fantasy Football league.
