The Zorá String Quartet won First Prize in the 2015 Young Concert Artists International Auditions and was named the Grand Prize and Gold Medal Winner of the 42nd Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and the Coleman-Barstow Prize winner at the Coleman National Chamber Music Competition in 2015. The Quartet is currently the Graduate Quartet in Residence at the Curtis Institute of Music, where they work closely with Shmuel Ashkenasi, Arnold Steinhardt, Pamela Frank, Steven Tenenbom, Peter Wiley and Mia Chung.

"The perfect quartet. They are so polished, so breathtakingly well-blended, the Zorá Quartet makes you listen very closely to their sound, fresh with sonic ideas in every phrase." (The Calgary Herald)
