Altius Quartet

Altius String Quartet is an ensemble  determined to further the art of chamber music through  performance, education and       outreach.  Deriving their name from the Olympic motto: Citius, Altius, Fortius (Latin for Faster, Higher, Stronger), Altius strives to communicate art to a more diverse audience through community engagement and innovative repertoire.  Hailed as “rich and captivating”, the Altius Quartet is garnering an international reputation and enrapturing the hearts of audiences through their charisma and dynamism.  Having just released their debut album, “Dress Code”, Altius is receiving critical praise for their musicianship and versatility.

Altius mixes traditional string quartet music from the classic giants with more current music as “Take Me On” by A-Ha.
