Concordia Quartet is a Singapore-based quartet that is part of a non-profit musicians collective, Resound Collective. The quartet made its debut in February 2020, and consists of four prize-winning musicians – Edward Tan, Kim Kyu Ri, Martin Peh and Lin Juan. They are the festival quartet in the upcoming Singapore Chamber Music Festival 2024.

Immediately following their debut, Concordia Quartet was part of the cast in Wild Rice’s The Importance of Being Earnest. When Covid-19 pandemic restrictions prevented events in concert halls, the quartet staged two live streamed concerts, in June and September 2020. Their highly innovative June 2020 live broadcast involved players performing from their homes, and was highlighted in the September issue of BBC Music Magazine.

In 2022, Concordia quartet was selected to take part in the Pacific Region International Summer Music Association (PRISMA) Academy in Canada as the quartet-in-residence where they gave recitals and worked with the renowned Lafayette Quartet. In 2023, the quartet was selected as one of the four string quartets to take part in HARPA International Music Academy (HIMA) USA’s String Quartet Intensive Programme in 2023 where they worked with former musicians from Pacifica Quartet and Cavani Quartet, and current members of Ariel Quartet and Blair Quartet.

With strong beliefs in community outreach, Concordia Quartet has presented a Christmas concert two years in a row at Gardens by the Bay’s Flower Dome, and are part of National Arts Council’s Arts Education Programme in their 2023-2025 cycle, reaching out to schools in Singapore and nurturing the next generation of classical music lovers.

Concordia Quartet has received masterclasses and coaching from the Lafayette Quartet, Verona Quartet, Nobuko Imai, Sibbi Bernhardsson, Mari Sato, Amit Even-Tov and Eric Wong.
