“Acacia Quartet performed so well that at times they seem like only one instrument, such is their clarity and unison.”
In eight years Acacia Quartet has won great respect for their versatile and inventive programs.
Acacia has recorded six albums, with ‘Blue Silence’ earning a nomination for an APRA-AMCOS Art Music ‘Award for Excellence’.
Acacia is passionate about supporting Australian composers, working with young musicians, and sharing their love of music with audiences of all ages. Their performances feature regularly on ABC Classic FM, Kulturradio Berlin, and other established radio stations around the world.
Acacia’s engagements in Australia include the Sydney Opera House, City Recital Hall Sydney, Melbourne Recital Hall, as well as extensive touring through regional NSW and Victoria. Acacia had their international debut in Vancouver, Canada at the Roundhouse in June 2016. The following year, Acacia Quartet was invited by the Christine Raphael Foundation to give their European debut, where they performed concerts in Berlin and recorded a CD with three string quartets by Günter Raphael for the Genuin record label.
