One of the most dynamic and exciting world-class ensembles of its generation, the Borealis String Quartet has received critical acclaim as an ensemble praised for its fiery performances, passionate style and refined, musical interpretation.
It was founded in Vancouver, British Columbia in the fall of 2000 and rapidly established a stellar reputation. Devoted to performing a variety of chamber music repertoire, the Borealis has collaborated with many different artists. As well as extensive performing, the quartet is frequently heard on CBC Radio and other radio stations across North America and Asia.
We are indeed very fortunate to welcome the Borealis String Quartet to SMUS.
