Winner of the Alice Coleman Grand Prize at the 60th annual Coleman Chamber Ensemble Competition in 2006 and one of ten quartets chosen to compete in the semi-finals of the 9th Banff International String Quartet Competition, the internationally acclaimed Attacca Quartet is well on its way to becoming one of America’s premier young performing ensembles.
Comprised of violinists Amy Schroeder and Keiko Tokunaga, violist Gillian Gallagher, and cellist Andrew Yee, the Attacca Quartet was formed at the Juilliard School in 2003 and gave its debut recital in 2007 as part of the Artists International Winners Series in Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. The Attacca Quartet is passionately devoted to connecting more fully with audiences, and has engaged in extensive community outreach projects throughout the United States.
