PACIFICA Quartet (U.S.A.) – Recognized for its virtuosity, exuberant performance style, and often-daring repertory choices, over the past twenty-five years the Pacifica Quartet has achieved international recognition as one of the finest chamber ensembles performing today.

Recipient of the Naumburg award, the Cleveland Quartet Award, the Musical America ensemble of the year and the Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Quartet also received a Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance for their redoing of Elliott Carter’s quartets on the Naxos label.

Named the quartet-in-residence at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music in March 2012, the Pacifica was previously the quartet-in-residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and received a Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance. In 2017, the Pacifica Quartet was appointed to lead the Center for Advanced Quartet Studies at the Aspen Music Festival and School.
