They thought they could, and they did…

The Blue Engine String Quartet was formed in 1997 as the core ensemble of the Nova Scotia chamber music series and are all members of Symphony Nova Scotia. This all woman quartet holds true to classical roots performing many of the masterworks of the string quartet repertoire while also expanding their horizons to perform innovative works that draw a wide-ranging audience to some of the East Coast’s most interesting chamber music programs.

Consistently recognized both as musical innovators and as impeccable musicians, Blue Engine String Quartet has been awarded artistic grants from both the Canada Council for the Arts and the Nova Scotia Arts Council. They are frequently broadcast on CBC Radio and have been featured on CBC Television.

“ The quartet caught the music’s light elegance like netting a rare butterfly on the wing.” Chronicle Herald, Nov. 10, 03

“… brought ten years of ardency and polish to provide the finest, most energetic

insightful playing I have ever heard” Chronicle Herald, Mar. 13, 07
