The Heartwood Quartet formed in 2020 over a love of chamber music in their first year of study at

the RNCM. They have participated in masterclasses with Marie Bitlloch, Nic Pendlebury, and Anna

Menzies, and engaged in numerous coaching sessions from members of the Elias Quartet, Endellion

Quartet and the Talich Quartet.

In August 2022 they appeared as Quartet in Residence at the Lake District Summer Music Festival,

performing in venues such as Kendal Town Hall and Ambleside Parish Church. They have also

participated in concert series around Manchester, including Didsbury Coffee Concerts, St Ann’s

Church, Buxton Pavillion, and Monday Night Musicales. They have received tuition as part of the

European Chamber Music Academy in March 2023, and have been selected to represent the RNCM

in numerous external engagements.


They were finalists of the RNCM Weil and Nossek Prize, and recently enjoyed attending the Chilingirian Quartet course at the West Dean College of Arts and Conservation. They have recently appeared as part of the Lake District festival and the Yorke Trust concert series.
