Winners of the 2023 Kirckman Concert Society Artists and recipients of the prestigious Tunnell Trust Awards in 2021, the Elmore Quartet is a young award-winning ensemble founded in 2017 at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, UK. Since their formation, the Elmore Quartet has been guided by some of the world's foremost chamber musicians, including Donald Grant (Elias Quartet), Petr Prause (Talich Quartet), Henk Guittart (Schoenberg Quartet), David Waterman (Endellion Quartet), Marc Danel (Quatuor Danel) and Catherine Manson (London Haydn Quartet).


The Elmores accepted the position as Studio Quartet at the RNCM in 2020 and their journey continued with their appointment as Junior Fellows in Chamber Music at the Royal Northern College of Music from 2021 to 2023, a position which gave them the opportunity to deliver regular coachings to Bachelor and Masters students. Over the past two years, the Elmore Quartet has made multiple recordings for BBC Radio 3 and has performed at renowned UK venues, including Wigmore Hall, Conway Hall, the Pitville Pump Room, and Oxford’s Holywell Music Room.


In 2020, the Quartet proudly launched the Elmore Chamber Music Festival, and it has since become an annual event held in the village of Elmore, Gloucestershire, every August. Presently, holding the position as Chamber Fellows at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, the Elmore Quartet have enjoyed a busy past year performing across the UK and Europe. Noteworthy collaborations have included performances with the Jerusalem Quartet, Elias Quartet, NOVO Quartet and pianist Keigo Mukawa.
