About The Artist

Winner of the Concert Artists Guild International Competition, the Young Canadian Musicians Award, top prizes at the Munich ARD International Music Competition and the Banff International String Quartet Competition, the all-Canadian Afiara String Quartet is credited with breathing deep, new insight into core classical repertoire. Testified the critic of the American Record Guide after one performance, “The Afiara had completely changed my pulse, breathing, and inner rhythms; when I went to speak, I choked up— the equivalent of hyperventilation.”
