Distinctive among today's young string quartets, the Omer Quartet captured the Gold Medal at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition in Indiana. Upon winning the 2017 YCA International Competition, they also garnered four performance prizes: concerts at Rockefeller University, Tryon Concert Association in North Carolina, as well as the Buffalo Chamber Music Society and Hayden's Ferry Chamber Music Series (Arizona). Committed to community engagement, they have received a Tarsio Trust Young Artists Grant to inaugurate a Music for Food series in Washington, D.C.
