Biography
"The gifted Voxare String Quartet" (The New York Times) formed in 2008 and has since received critical praise for its inventive programming, technical prowess, attention to detail, and passionate performances. The New York Times declared that Voxare plays "with such penetrating tone and lucid textures," and has on numerous occasions chosen Voxare as its Classical Pick of the Week. Voxare's performances include appearances at Avery Fisher Hall with the New York Philharmonic, Carnegie Hall, the Guggenheim Museum, and Lincoln Center. Voxare's unique performing activities earned the quartet Chamber Music America's 2010 ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming. Voxare frequently works with living composers, including Pulitzer Prize winning composers Ned Rorem and David Del Tredici. Voxare's next commercial release will be the complete quartets of Daron Hagen, to be released on Naxos.

With a repertoire spanning five centuries, Voxare is not afraid to break down the boundaries of classical music; they have made and performed their own transcriptions of popular and rock music and often perform in alternative concert venues, presenting innovative concerts focused on unique and accessible presentations of contemporary chamber music while assimilating classical standards and popular music. Voxare can be found on the soundtracks of several films shown at festivals such as Sundance and Tribeca. 

Voxare has studied quartet repertoire with Robert Mann, founder of the Juilliard String Quartet; current members of the Juilliard String Quartet; and members of the Kronos, Tokyo, Orion, and American String Quartets. Voxare members are graduates of the Juilliard School in New York.
