Chester Music Society welcome the Jubilee String Quartet for the latest in its series of Celebrity Concerts at St Mary’s Centre on Wednesday, February 11 at 7.30pm.
The Jubilee Quartet was formed in 2006 at the Royal Academy of Music, London. At the time, they all travelled on the Jubilee line!
They are first prize winners of the Val Tidone International Chamber Music Competition 2010 and the St Martin’s Chamber Music Competition 2013 and award winners of the Tillett Trust Young Artists’ Platform, the Park Lane Group Young Artists, the Hattori Foundation, the Worshipful Company of Musicians Concordia Foundation Artists Fund, and recipients of the Philharmonia MMSF Charles Henderson Ensemble Award.
The quartet has performed widely throughout the UK, in venues such as the Wigmore Hall and the Purcell Room, and their continental tours have included a performance in the presence of the former Czech president Vaclav Havel.
They also enjoy a variety of outreach work as part of the Live Music Now! scheme, and have participated in the Lake District Summer Music and St Magnus Festivals.
More recently the group was selected to attend the McGill International String Quartet Academy in Montreal, Canada. Future engagements include concerts around the UK, in Vienna and Italy.
In Chester, they will play Haydn’s Quartet No 31, Mozart’s Quartet No 22 and Beethoven’s Quartet No 7 Op 33 No 1.
