About Concordia Quartet:

Concordia Quartet is a Singapore-based quartet that is part of a non-profit musicians collective, Resound Collective. The quartet made its debut in February 2020, and consists of four prize-winning musicians – Edward Tan, Kim Kyu Ri, Martin Peh and Lin Juan.

Immediately following their debut, Concordia Quartet was part of the cast in Wild Rice’s The Importance of Being Earnest. When Covid-19 pandemic restrictions prevented events in concert halls, the quartet staged two live streamed concerts, in June and September 2020. Their highly innovative June 2020 live broadcast involved players performing from their homes, and was highlighted in the September issue of BBC Music Magazine.

In early 2021, Concordia Quartet partnered the wind principals of Re:Sound Chamber Orchestra, and they were finally able to play to a live audience in October 2021. In the first half of 2022, while violinist Kim Kyu Ri spent a semester in New York on postgraduate studies, the quartet’s members worked as a piano quartet with acclaimed composer and pianist Jonathan Shin. On Kim’s return, the string quartet took part in Pacific Region International Summer Music Association (PRISMA) in Canada as string quartet-inresidence in June 2022, and thereafter presented a concert in Singapore in July 2022.

Concordia Quartet has received masterclasses and coaching from the Lafayette Quartet, Verona Quartet, Pavlo Beznosiuk, Igor Yuzefovich, Carla Leurs, Hung-Wei Huang, Brian Yoon and Leslie Tan.
