Description

"Founded in 2015, the group won first prize in the 2018 Schoenfeld International String Competition and the grand prize and gold medal in the senior string division of the 2016 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition. Ulysses took first in the American Prize and won second prize at the Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in 2017.

The Ulysses String Quartet has been praised for their “textural versatility,” “grave beauty” and “the kind of chemistry many quartets long for, but rarely achieve” (The Strad), as well as their “avid enthusiasm … [with] chops to back up their passion” (San Diego Story), “delivered with a blend of exuberance and polished artistry” (The Buffalo News).

The members of Ulysses hold degrees from the Juilliard School, Manhattan School of Music, New England Conservatory, and Yale University. The musicians perform on instruments on loan from the Canada Council of the Arts Instrument Bank and the Maestro Foundation.

Ulysses believes intensely in the power of music to inspire, empower, enlighten, bring people together, and is committed to supporting diversity in the artistic landscape of our time. Education is a cornerstone of the quartet’s musical vision, and they will continue to provide access to these resources for young people from all backgrounds."
