CU Boulder's graduate string quartet-in-residence, hailed as "rich" and "captivating" by new music website I Care If You Listen, is committed to bringing chamber music to diverse audiences. Taking its name from the Latin word for "higher," the Altius Quartet injects young energy and passion into music both old and new.
