About Julius Quartet

Commended for leaving audiences “mesmerized by its resonant sound” (The Collegiate Times), the Julius Quartet has cultivated a distinguished voice since its formation in 2012. As passionate chamber musicians, the quartet strives to spread the values of chamber music to diverse communities in addition to presenting their unique expression within the music. The quartet’s expressive personality has led to performances all over North America in various venues such as Bing Concert Hall, Bargemusic, the Shalin Liu Performing Arts Center, The Moss Arts Center, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. Since the ensemble’s formation, the group seeks to engage with community organizations and educational programs, such as “Bridging the Gap” – a program for youth at risk associated with The Salvation Army – and educational residencies with the MacPhail Center for Music (MN) and the Quad City Arts Visiting Artist Series (IA), enriching the various regions through performance workshops and interactive sessions across multiple school districts. In the Spring of 2020, the quartet and Texas composer Jesus J. Martinez founded EMERGE Coalition Inc (EMERGE ): a performing arts non profit based in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. With a mission to foster, develop and engage in the arts community, EMERGE has virtually hosted composers from around the world and premiered over 50 new works that were live-streamed to audiences across 5 continents. Furthermore, its new OFF the Beaten Path Performance Series was selected to be a part of the AT&T Performing Arts Center 22/23 Elevator Project season. Swiftly rising to critical acclaim, the group was awarded First Prize at the Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition, First Prize at the first annual MA-ASTA String Quartet/Quintet Competition by unanimous vote, and was nominated for the Harvard Musical Association’s Arthur Foote Award. Residing in Dallas TX, the quartet served as the Peak Fellowship Ensemble-in-Residence at the Meadows School of the Arts at Southern Methodist University from 2017-2019, receiving close mentorship from violinist Aaron Boyd, Director of Chamber Music at SMU, and members of the Escher String Quartet. Prior to this appointment, the quartet served as the Graduate Quartet-in-Residence at the John J. Cali School of Music at Montclair State University, where they worked intensely with the celebrated Shanghai Quartet.
