20 YEARS CHANNELLING INSPIRATION
Acclaimed for its high energy and boldness, Quasar has, for now over twenty years, explored countless facets of musical creation including chamber music, improvisation, musical theatre and, particularly, the integration of technological developments in electronics with contemporary music, an area in which the quartet has enthusiastically found itself in a leading role. Five-time OPUS Award winners, Quasar has performed throughout Canada, the United States and Europe. Since its founding in 1994, Quasar has premiered over one-hundred works.
ALWAYS LOOKING AHEAD
After over twenty years of experience in contemporary music, Quasar, in its prime, looks to the future with hope, and its characteristic passion and enthusiasm, to the numerous and diverse endeavours it has planned. Still comprised of their four founding members, the quartet is spurred on by their profound determination to evolve and eagerness to take on new challenges.
