The Vera Quartet are the winners of the Grand Prize at recent Plowman and Yellow Springs chamber music competitions, as well as awards from the M-Prize and Wigmore Hall competitions. They were recently named String Quartet in Residence at the Curtis Institute of Music. With members from Spain, Cuba, and the USA, the ensemble shares a deep commitment to exploring and programming the music of their roots, in juxtaposition with the great masterworks of the string quartet repertoire. Since they came together in 2015, the quartet has held residency at the Beethovenhaus in Bonn and the Banff Centre, and has embarked on tours of Spain and Korea. In April 2017, they were selected as Young Artist in Residence at NPR’s Performance Today.
