Amiti String Quartet
Founded in early 2021, the Amiti String Quartet is a new Brisbane-based ensemble with all members being current students or graduates of the UQ School of Music. The quartet’s debut at the Australian Festival of Chamber Music’s Winterschool in 2021 was a resounding success following many beautiful performances at some incredible venues in North Queensland. Amiti were also privileged to perform alongside other incredible artists such as eminent clarinetist Lloyd Van’t Hoff, UQ’s own Adam Chalabi and one of Australia’s leading didgeridoo players, multi-instrumentalists and composers, William Barton and his mother Delmae Barton.
In 2022, Amiti String Quartet are delighted to return to Townsville in July as the Winterschool Outreach Ensemble to again partake in the wonderful opportunities provided by the Australian Festival of Chamber Music. They will also attend the Australian Youth Orchestra’s Chamber Players Program in September and October which will be held in their hometown of Brisbane. Although Amiti String Quartet has only formed recently, their baptism into the world of chamber music has expanded their musical horizons and they can’t wait to see where their journey will take them next.
