Formed in 2006, the Afiara String Quartet takes its name from the Spanish fiar, meaning "to trust", a basic element vital to the depth and joy of its music-making. The Afiara String Quartet is currently the graduate resident string quartet at The Juilliard School in New York, where they serve as teaching assistants to the Juilliard String Quartet. The all-Canadian Quartet offers performances of "startling intensity" with a "powerful, keen-edged collective sound" - San Francisco Classical Voice. Winner of the Concert Artists Guild International Competition, the Young Canadian Musicians Award, top prizes at the Munich ARD International Music Competition and the Banff International String Quartet Competition, where they also took the Szekely Prize for the best performance of Beethoven, the Afiara Quartet balances a lively interest in new works with deep insight into core classical repertoire.
