Winners of the 14th Banff International String Quartet Competition in 2022, the Isidore String Quartet was formed in 2019 with a vision to revisit, rediscover, and reinvigorate the repertory. The members of the quartet are violinists Adrian Steele and Phoenix Avalon, violist Devin Moore, and cellist Joshua McClendon.

Their Banff triumph brings extensive tours of North America and Europe, a two-year appointment as the Peak Fellowship Ensemble-in-Residence, performances at Haydn Hall in Eisenstadt and the Lucerne Festival, plus a residency at Banff Centre.

The quartet will be resident ensemble with PROJECT: MUSIC HEALS US providing encouragement, education, and healing to marginalized communities including elderly, disabled, rehabilitating incarcerated and homeless populations.

Actively dedicated to pushing the boundaries of music-making, the ISQ is resident ensemble for the Contemporary Alexander School/Alexander Alliance International which explores the vast landscape of body awareness, mental preparation, and performance practice.

The name Isidore recognizes the ensemble’s musical connection to the Juilliard  Quartet: one of that group’s early members was legendary violinist Isidore Cohen.
