A string quartet in demand around Asia, Europe, and the United States, Cong Quartet is the winner of Musique à Flaine’s artistic residency in 2023 and was priorly the Artist in Residence & Ensemble-in-Residence at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) from 2019-2022.

Drawing from the mentorship of Prof. Ivan Chan, Shmuel Ashkenasi, Danel, Ysaÿe, and Pacifica Quartets, Cong Quartet’s rapid rise was fueled by top prize wins at the Virtuoso & Belcanto’s Chamber Music Competition in Italy, Salzburg Mozart International Chamber Competition in Tokyo, Kreutzer International Competition in Belgium and as a finalist of several international chamber music competitions. They have performed with world-renowned artists such as the Borromeo Quartet, Enrico Pace, Yuri Bashmet, Joshua Bell, and were focusing in collaborations with prominent musicians of their generation such as violinist Angela Chan, Jinjoo Cho, Shannon Lee, violist Adrien La Marca, cellist Brannon Cho, and Sterling Elliott in the past year.
