Lunchtime Concert: Solem Quartet

Winners of the 2014 Royal Overseas League Ensemble Competition, the Solem Quartet were brought together in 2011 by their studies at the University of Manchester, where they take their name from the University motto “arduus ad solem” meaning “striving towards the sun”.

The Solem Quartet enjoy an increasingly busy concert schedule performing at venues across the UK including Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Holywell Music Room and the Edinburgh Festival. As well as performing the quartet gives coaching to young string quartets at the annual Aberystwyth MusicFest and has led specialist chamber music workshops in North Wales and Gloucestershire.
