The Iceberg Quartet
The Iceberg String Quartet was formed in September 2017 at the McGill University Schulich School of Music in Montréal, Québec. Consisting of cellist Jacob Efthimiou, violist Chung-Han Hsiao, and violinists Christopher Stork and Russell Iceberg, the quartet has studied with André Roy and Brian Manker. In December 2017, the quartet won the grand prize at the McGill University chamber music competition, and was sent to study and perform at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, Netherlands in April 2018. At The Hague, the Iceberg Quartet worked closely with Ásdís Valdimarsdottir of the Miami String Quartet. In July, 2018, the Iceberg String Quartet participated in the Evolution of the String Quartet Program at the Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity. In Banff, they coached with the Eybler, Parker, and JACK String Quartets. For the 2018-2019 concert season, the Iceberg Quartet will perform in the U.S. states of Vermont, New York, and Delaware, as well as in their home town of Montréal, Québec.
