      Amernet String Quartet

      Lauded for their “intelligence” and “immensely satisfying” playing by The New York Times, the Amernet String Quartet has garnered worldwide praise and recognition as one of today’s exceptional string quartets. Ensemble-in-residence at Florida International University, the group was formed in 1991, while its founding members were students at The Juilliard School. Prior residencies include Northern Kentucky University, the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, and the Caramoor Center for the Arts. Among Amernet’s engagements have been appearances at Ravinia, Lincoln Center, the Mostly Mozart Festival, the Harvard Musical Association and major festivals around the world.

      Their busy performance schedule has taken the group across the United States, as well as to Japan, Korea, Canada, Belgium, France, Germany, Romania, Switzerland and Mexico. They have collaborated with numerous artists and ensembles including the Tokyo, St. Lawrence and Ying string quartets. The Amernet Quartet founded the Norse Festival, a summer chamber music workshop at Northern Kentucky University that provides an opportunity for young musicians from the region to work intensively in chamber groups. Currently, the quartet hosts an annual summer chamber music camp in Miami called Animato. The quartet actively advocates for neglected works of the past and aims to enliven the concert experience through its innovative programming.
