Hailed for its "gripping intensity" and "suspenseful and virtuoso playing" by the
San Francisco Classical Voice , the Amphion String Quartet was also awarded
First Prize at the Hugo Kauder String Quartet Competition in New Haven, CT, and
First Prize in the Piano and Strings category as well as the Audience Choice Award at
the 2010 Plowman Chamber Music Competition held in Columbia, Missouri.
Highlights of the 2011-2012 season include New York performances on the Schneider Concerts Series at the New School and on the Salome Chamber Orchestra Series at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in addition to the Tertulia chamber music series. In summer 2011, the Amphion Quartet was the Protégé Quartet-in-Residence at Chamber Music Northwest, where the quartet had the opportunity to collaborate with artistic director/clarinetist David Shifrin, and they also performed at the OK Mozart Festival. The previous summer, the foursome performed at California's Music@Menlo International Program, and also participated in the Beethoven Institute at New York's Mannes College of Music, where they worked closely with the Brentano Quartet.
Violinists Katie Hyun and David Southorn, violist, Wei-Yang Andy Lin, and cellist, Mihai Marica, first joined together for a performance at Sprague Hall at the Yale School of Music in February, 2009. The overwhelmingly positive audience reception at this concert was the
inspiration behind their mutual desire to pursue a career as the Amphion String Quartet
