The internationally acclaimed, New York-based Attacca String Quartet have firmly been establishing themselves as one of the new generation’s premier, young chamber ensembles.

Comprised of violinists Amy Schroeder and Keiko Tokunaga, violist Nathan Schram and cellist Andrew Yee, the Attacca Quartet are the recipients of distinguished prizes at the Osaka, Melbourne and Coleman International Chamber Music Competitions – and were recently described by The New York Times as ‘vivacious … exuberant, funky, and … exactingly nuanced’.

From 2011-2013 they served as the Juilliard Graduate Resident String Quartet, and for the 2014 – 2015 season the Attacca Quartet was named the Quartet in Residence for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
