The Ulysses String Quartet has been praised for their “textural versatility,” “grave beauty,” and “gentle blanket of colour,” (Strad) as well as “avid enthusiasm … [with] chops to back up their passion” and a “vibrant sonority” (San Diego Story). Winners of First Prize in the 2018 Schoenfeld International String Competition, along with the Grand Prize and Gold Medal in the Senior String Division of the 2016 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, the group was founded in the summer of 2015. Ulysses also won First Place in the American Prize, and 2nd Prize of the Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in 2017. The quartet competed in the Semifinals Round of the 2016 Banff International String Quartet Competition where they garnered a Career Development Grant.
