The Zeitgeist Quartet was founded in March of 2019 under the guidance of Dr Curt Thompson. This quartet is made up of violins Helen Shen and Jackie Wong, violist Kiara Kim, and cellist Daniel Ng, all of whom are currently studying at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music (MCM).
The quartet is an enthusiastic and avid group of musicians who have gained much insight from their tutorials and rehearsals at the MCM. They are all members of the MCM Symphony Orchestra and have enjoyed playing a wide range of orchestral repertoire. Helen and Kiara have participated in the MIMIR Chamber Festival in Australia since 2017 and were tutored by its inspiring festival artists. They found the experience eye-opening and invigorating and are thrilled to be working with them again this year.
Zeitgeist Quartet enjoyed performing Haydn and Beethoven at their inaugural performance at the MCM in April, after an intense period of rehearsals. They look forward to participating in more performances together, sharing great music with audiences.
