1st prize winners of the 'Val Tidone International Chamber Music Competition' and recipients of the Tillett Trust 'Young Artists' Platform' and the Philharmonia Orchestra MMSF 'Charles Henderson Ensemble Award', the Jubilee Quartet was formed in 2006 at the Royal Academy of Music, London, where they currently hold a Leverhulme Chamber Music Fellowship. During this time, they were given instruction under professors such as Thomas Brandis, Garfield Jackson, Martin Outram, and Jon Thorne, and have received masterclasses from the Skampa and Chilingirian Quartets, Pierre Colombet, Miguel da Silva, Hatto Beyerle, and Sylvia Rosenberg.
The Quartet has performed extensively in the UK and its continental tours have included a performance in the presence of former Czech president Vaclav Havel. The Quartet also enjoys a variety of outreach work as part of the 'Live Music Now!' scheme.
In May 2012 the Quartet performed Chausson's 'Concerto for Violin, Piano, and String Quartet' with Jack Liebeck and Katya Apekisheva at the Purcell Room, and last summer participated in the Lake District Summer Music and St Magnus Festivals.
Future engagements include concerts around the UK and Italy, including a Purcell Room recital in May 2013 and in September the Quartet will attend the 'Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition', having been preselected. In November 2012 the quartet were finalists in the 'Joseph Joachim International Chamber Music Competition', Weimar.
The Richard Carne Trust was set up in 2006 to assist talented young people in the performing arts. The Trust also supports the Richard Carne Quartets in Residence at Trinity Laban.
