The Vega String Quartet, Quartet in Residence at Emory University, is creating and cultivating a new generation of passionate and educated chamber music lovers. The New York Times raved that their "playing that had a kind of clean intoxication to it, pulling the listener along...the musicians took real risks in their music making..." and the Los Angeles Times praised their "triumphant L.A. debut". The quartet has toured throughout Asia, Europe and North America and performed in major cities such as Brussels, Cologne, London, New York, Mexico City, Paris, Seoul, Tokyo and Vancouver; major venues including Weill Hall and Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, Bargemusic and Duke Hall at the Royal Academy of Music, London. The Quartet is a frequent guest at numerous music festivals including Amelia Island, Aspen, Brevard, Highlands- Cashiers, Kingston, Mostly Mozart, Rockport, San Miguel de Allende, and SummerFest La Jolla among others. They have been the Quartet in Residence at the Van Cliburn Institute, on the artist roster of Carnegie Hall's New York City Neighborhood Concert series, the Community Concerts Association roster and most recently, the Woodruff Arts Center's Art For Learning program that serves the greater Atlanta area.

The Vega's major projects since being named Quartet in Residence at Emory in 2006 include the complete cycle of Beethoven Quartets, a Bach–Bartók cycle; and the commissions and premieres of works by numerous leading composers. They started the Youth Chamber Music Program and have developed innovative programs collaborating with other art forms including dance, painting, poetry and theatre.

The Quartet's live broadcast credits include NPR's Performance Today (USA), the National Radio of China, Shanghai TV, Radio France, France Musiques, the Westdeutscher Rundfunk, and the National Radio of the Czech Republic. The Quartet captured four of the top six prizes at the 1999 Bordeaux String Quartet Competition (including the international music critics' prize) as well as top prizes at the Coleman Chamber Ensemble Competition, the Carmel Chamber Music Competition, and the National Society of Arts and Letters String Quartet Competition.

The members of the Vega Quartet frequently collaborate with some of the world's finest musicians including Andres Cardenes, Eliot Fisk, Robert McDuffie, Christopher O'Riley, William Preucil, Richard Stoltzman, Robert Spano, Charles Wadsworth, the Eroica Trio and the St. Petersburg Quartet.

The Vega Quartet's residency at Emory is made possible in part by a generous grant from the Abraham J. and Phyllis Katz Foundation.

...the Vega Quartet capture the spirit of the music perfectly.Henry FogelFanfare Magazine March 2015
The performance was well stenciled, lively and characteristic of the composer's early style ... lyrically impassioned ... The Vega Quartet captured the composer's anxiety and inner turmoil.Mark GreshamARTSAtl May 2012
...the Vega played the poo out of the Scherzo’s devilishly difficult passages, sounding fleet and light, while prolonging the drama of the work. The long, legato lines of the andante showed off this young ensemble’s ability to switch gears and delve, beautifully, into music.June LeBellYourObserver.com

The music simply took over and created a space of its own. The musicians played with a deceptive simplicity and fluidity that made difficult passages seem childlike in their straightforwardness. Big, strong playing...excellent ensemble. Crisp, clear precision.The New York Times
The Vega Quartet was all singing, with remarkable sonority, intimate ensemble, and integrally sound musicianship. Every note, every phrase was attention-holding and satisfying. Especially impressive was cellist Guang Wang. Whether bowed or plucked, the instrument asserted a marvelous ground that thickened the sauce just right. When melodies were passed among ... it was as though the ideal ingredients and complementary spices were being added in a perfect blend. Never taking a misstep or making an unmusical sound, it was a delight.Classical Voice of North Carolina
Fine young players who have a well developed flair for stylish performance. There was a nice sense of crisp articulation, controlled dynamics and lovely phrasing. Bold and vibrant playing. This was a performance to treasure. Extraordinary musicianship, virtuosic intensity, a knockout performance.Peninsula Reviews (California)
The Quartet enthralled their audience with musical knowledge, discipline, precision and art.The News Leader (Florida)
The marvelous... foursome...The Strad
a touch both light and distinctive, emotional but not overbearing...playing that had a kind of clean intoxication to it, pulling the listener along...the musicians took real risks in their music making...The New York Times
...abundant strengths...a single-minded and relentless concentration that gives sweep and perspective to the music at hand... mechanical superiority and a compelling sense of authority...It glowed with musicality and balance...from fragile delicacy to virile aggression and eloquent songfulness...The Los Angeles Times
There can be no doubt that a sensational chamber music group has burst upon the scene. The breathtaking performance burned with drama from first moment to last, truly stunning!The Reader (San Diego)
These four young... musicians have that rare star quality that makes an indelible and unforgettable impression on the listener... virtuoso perfection, highly developed musical understanding and an elevated quality of ensemble expertise.Monterey County Herald
...remarkable assurance and conviction...a well-blended sound that allows individual lines to shine through... considerable technical aplomb...intensely lyrical expression...Sun-Sentinel (Ft. Lauderdale)
The Vega Quartet played with suave urgency and immaculate technique...Miami Herald

Emory Youth Chamber Music Program



The Vega Chamber Music Program is our proud contribution to the Atlanta community. The purpose of the program is to fill the gap between the various youth symphony orchestra activities and private teaching in the Atlanta area.

Chamber music, in conjunction with orchestral and solo music, is one of the major genres of classical music. The characteristics particular to chamber music are:

• The music is played by a small group of musicians without a conductor.
• Each player, unlike in an orchestra, has his own individual part.
• The group size varies generally from 2–9 people.

The unique communication and intimacy created among the performers have attracted the great masters of music history, from Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven to Debussy, Schoenberg and Bartok, to write for this genre. The vast repertoire produced by these great composers has kept generations of performers wandering, exploring and continuously engaged, challenged and inspired.

Chamber music teaches the performers how to play as a team, how to support, enhance, and inspire each other, while still allowing every performer to express his or her individuality and blossom through music.

Chamber music is sophisticated yet approachable. If you have experienced orchestral training, the study of chamber music will bring your playing to a new level; for those who eventually want to taste orchestral playing, chamber music is an easy and efficient first step because it teaches the basics which include how to listen, how to watch, how to be together and at the most advanced level, how to differ.

If you are interested in knowing more about chamber music, please come to the musical events listed on our Calendar page. If you are interested in joining the program, please download the application form, fill it out and send it to Vega Quartet/EYCP c/o Jessica Wu 2656 Gleneagles Dr. Tucker, GA 30084.   For more information, please contact us at vega@vegaquartet.com
