Afiara String Quartet

The all-Canadian Afiara String Quartet (Valerie Li and Yuri Cho, violins; David Samuel, viola; and Adrian Fung, cello) is the graduate resident string quartet at The Juilliard School in New York, where they serve as teaching assistants to the celebrated Juilliard String Quartet. In 2008, the Afiara Quartet won the Concert Artists Guild International Competition in New York, after winning 2nd prize at the Munich ARD International Music Competition. As the only Canadian ensemble to win top honors in either of these historic competitions, the San Francisco Classical Voice calls the Afiara Quartet “a terrifically unified, versatile, and moving ensemble” with “startling intensity” and a “powerful, keen-edged collective sound”.
