Lauded for their "intelligence" and "immensely satisfying" playing by the New York Times, The Amernet Quartet has garnered worldwide praise and recognition as one of today's exceptional string quartets.

The group rose to international attention after their first season, winning the gold medal at the Tokyo International Music Competition, before being named first prize winners of the prestigious Banff International String Quartet Competition.
The quartet maintains a busy performance schedule that has taken them across the Americas and to Asia, Europe and the Middle East. The Amernet's current season includes appearances at the Festival Internacional Cervantino; the Kennedy Center, and as soloists with the Princeton University Orchestra, as well as the premieres of several new works for quartet and return engagements in Canada, Latin America, and Israel.
