The Tyburn String Quartet has been one of the Royal Academy of Music’s most promising ensembles. The individual members were all awarded scholarships on their entrance to the Academy and came together at the end of their second year. They have enjoyed a busy couple of years together at the Academy with notable projects including a collaboration with the Central School of Speech and Drama, performing as part of the chamber orchestra for the Academy's production of Albert Herring as well as being selected to appear in the Schumann festival in January. The quartet have taken masterclasses with Thomas Brandis, Sylvia Rosenberg, The Vanbrugh Quartet and the Skampa Quartet.
This year they received the John Baker award at the Academy and have been performing at a number of venues and festivals around the country, most notably at the Royal Festival Hall, The King’s Place, The Royal Opera House, The Edinburgh Festival, The Leamington and Hastings Recital Series and live on Radio 3. They are due to take up the position of resident string quartet as part of the Open Academy from September.
