The Cassia String Quartet, formed in 2010, was born out of a passion for the string quartet repertoire. Recipients of the 2013 Musiciens Entre Guerre et Paix Award from the International Académie Ravel, they were finalists in the Trinity Laban Intercollegiate Competition and winners of the 2013 Nossek String Quartet Prize.
The Cassia have performed around the UK and further afield at venues such as the Wigmore Hall, The Crucible (MitR), Salisbury International Arts Festival and Leeds International Concert Series. Previously mentored by the late Lindsay Quartet leader Peter Cropper they are now an associate quartet of Birmingham Conservatoire, receiving regular coaching from Robin Ireland and Oliver Wille.
Collaborations include commissioning and premiering a quartet by the composer Aaron Parker and performing alongside the clarinettist Nicholas Cox, pianist Sally Halsey and the Ely Sinfonia. As an ensemble the Cassia have led workshops for various schools and youth orchestras. The quartet have also enjoyed working alongside several bands, most notably New Order, The Charlatans and Daughter.
