Beginning in 1990, the Maia Quartet, former quartet-in-residence at the University of Iowa, established itself nationally as an ensemble of innovation and versatility, appearing in major concert halls throughout the United States and abroad, including New York’s Alice Tully Hall, Merkin Hall and the 92nd Street Y, Washington D.C. Kennedy Center, Beijing’s Forbidden City Concert Hall and the Aspen Music Festival’s Harris Hall. The quartet’s commitment to the work of living composers has led to premières of compositions by Pierre Jalbert, Dan Coleman, Vivian Fung and Margaret Brouwer. Formed at the Cleveland Institute of Music, they were the recipients of the Arnhold String Quartet Fellowship at The Juilliard School and held summer fellowships at the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival and at the Aspen Center for Advanced Quartet Studies, where they worked with the American, Cleveland, Emerson and Tokyo String Quartets. The Maia Quartet played its final concerts in November 2011.
