Argus Quartet

Co-First Prize Winner, 2017 CAG Competition

The Argus Quartet has quickly emerged as one of today’s most dynamic and versatile young ensembles, winning First Prize at both the 2017 CAG Victor Elmaleh Competition and the 2017 M-Prize Chamber Arts Competition. As the current Graduate Quartet in Residence at The Juilliard School, Argus is dedicated to reinvigorating the audience-performer relationship through innovative concerts and diverse programming.
