The Vera Quartet is currently Graduate String Quartet-in-Residence at the Jacobs School of Music, Indiana University, studying with the Pacifica Quartet. They will also be quartet in residence for the JSoM New Music Ensemble this year, performing contemporary works for string quartet on many of NME’s programs and working with its director, David Dzubay.
The quartet was formed in August of 2015 and immediately won a prestigious Jacobs School competition, enabling residency and performances last spring at the Beethoven-Haus in Bonn, Germany. In the summer of 2016, they participated in the Chamber Music Residency at the Banff Centre in Canada. In the coming months the quartet will be representing Indiana University on a tour of Korea, and will be featured on NPR’s Performance Today. In addition to working with the Pacifica Quartet, they have coached with Atar Arad, Mauricio Fuks, Alex Kerr, Peter Stumpf, Mark Steinberg, Richard Lester, Hsin-Yun Yang, Barry Shiffman, and Joshua Bell.
