Recognized for its virtuosity, exuberant performance style, and daring repertory choices, the Pacifica Quartet has over the past two decades gained international stature as one of the finest chamber ensembles performing today. The Pacifica tours extensively throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, and Australia, performing regularly in the world’s major concert halls. Named the quartet-in-residence at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music in March 2012, the Pacifica was also the quartet-in-residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (2009–12)—a position that has otherwise been held only by the Guarneri String Quartet—and received the 2009 Grammy for Best Chamber Music Performance.
