The Tinalley String Quartet will begin a new relationship with the University of Queensland in 2018 as Ensemble in Residence. The residency will comprise numerous performances at the School of Music, UQ Arts Museum and Custom’s House as well as chamber music coaching and masterclasses.
“The appointment of the Tinalley String quartet is the culmination of a long term strategy to establish the School as a centre for chamber music education” said UQ Music Head of School Professor Margaret Barrett. “The ensemble will contribute to the School through modelling exemplary chamber music performance practice, mentoring UQ student ensembles, and contributing to creative practice research.”
TSQ’s First violinist, Adam Chalabi who is also Associate Professor at the School of Music spoke of the residency “the quartet is particularly looking forward to becoming an integral part of the teaching fabric at the School of Music.” Patrick Murphy, who was appointed as Tinalley’s new cellist earlier this year, is also based at UQ as Cello Performance Fellow.
