Curtis Institute Announces New Quartet in Residence

VC Young Artist Viano Quartet has been named the string quartet in residence at the Curtis Institute of Music for the 2021-22 academic year

At Curtis, the quartet will be a part of the Nina von Maltzahn String Quartet Program, founded in 2013. Ensembles in this program left to pursue successful careers in the industry and were awarded accolades including the Avery Fischer Career Grant and Grammy Award nominations.

Formed in 2015 at the Colburn Conservatory of Music in Los Angeles, the Viano Quartet is comprised of violinists Hao Zhou and Lucy Wang, violist Aiden Kane and cellist Tate Zawadiuk.

The quartet is a former major prize winner at the Osaka, Wigmore Hall, Yellow Springs, and Fischoff International Chamber Music Competitions. In September of 2019, they were awarded first prize at the prestigious Banff International String Quartet Competition, in Banff, Canada.

Recent appearances include performances at the Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival, the Friends of Chamber Music of Troy, the Salt Lake Chamber Music Society, and the Banff International String Quartet Festival.

“The four of us are thrilled to be moving to Philadelphia,” the ensemble said in a statement. “We look forward to immersing ourselves in Curtis’s exceptional community of musicians, colleagues, and mentors. We’re so grateful for the opportunity to work with the truly world-class members of the faculty, including the Dover Quartet, whom we’ve always looked up to.”
