Ulysses String Quartet
Winners of the Grand Prize and the Gold Medal in the Senior String Division of the 2016 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, the Ulysses String Quartet was founded in the summer of 2015. Hailing from Canada, the United States, and Taiwan, members have performed in prestigious halls such as Esterházy Palace, Carnegie Hall, and the Taiwan National Concert Hall. Recent and upcoming season highlights include performances across the United States in New York, Massachusetts, Maine, Utah, and Oregon, along with appearances in Japan and Italy. Members perform on instruments and bows graciously on loan from the Canada Council of the Arts Instrument Bank and the Maestro Foundation.
Along with active chamber music careers, Ulysses members hold principal positions with groups such as the Cape Symphony, Cayuga Chamber Orchestra, Shattered Glass, International Chamber Players, and Miami Symphony. They received degrees from the Juilliard School, New England Conservatory, Manhattan School of Music, and Yale University. Members are pursuing their Doctorate of Musical Arts Degree at Stony Brook University, the City University of New York and Manhattan School of Music.
Tina, Rhiannon and Colin are Kneisel Hall alumni and are thrilled to return to Blue Hill.
