"With its intense, focused style of playing, drawing the maximum expression from every phrase, the quartet presents itself as a group of star players, the energy radiating from them like the stars." - Calgary Herald

One of the most dynamic and exciting world-class ensembles of its generation, The Borealis String Quartet has received international critical acclaim as an ensemble praised for its fiery performances, passionate style, and refined, musical interpretation. Founded in Vancouver, British Columbia in the fall of 2000 and rapidly establishing a stellar reputation, the Borealis has toured extensively in North America Europe and Asia and performed to enthusiastic sold-out audiences in major cities including New York, Washington DC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Rome, Shanghai, Taipei, Beijing, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and of course, their home town of Vancouver.

The Borealis continue to receive awards and rave accolades from presenters, renowned musicians and critics alike for their artistry. They were the only classical group to be selected for the Great Canadian Dream Competition which was televised across the nation and as a result, were the only classical musicians to perform for the Prime Minister of Canada at the Parliament Hill in Ottawa for an audience of over 75,000. Since then, they have performed on every music series in Canada.
