The Ansonia Quartet was formed at The Juilliard School in September 2016, when the four members met during their first days of graduate school and immediately bonded over a mutual passion for string quartet. Comprised of musicians hailing from Canada, the United States, and Japan, Ansonia Quartet has been selected as a group for the Honors Chamber Music Program and Gluck Community Service Fellowship for 2017/18 academic year at Juilliard. The quartet has raised $10,000+ on a crowdfunding platform to hold a Japan Tour in August 2017, which ended up with a huge success. Please check out our upcoming performances below!
