About Acacia Quartet: In nearly eight years Acacia Quartet has won great respect for versatile and inventive programs which couple established repertoire with the unorthodox. Acacia has recorded six albums – three of which earned nominations for an ARIA Award for ‘Best Classical Album’ and an APRA-AMCOS Art Music ‘Award for Excellence’. Acacia is passionate about supporting Australian composers, working with young musicians and sharing its love of music with audiences of all ages. Its performances feature regularly on ABC Classic FM and Fine Music 102.5.

Acacia’s engagements have included Melbourne Recital Centre, Sydney Opera House, City Recital Hall, The Concourse, the National Galleries of VIC and N.S.W. and its international debut in Vancouver, Canada, at the Roundhouse. In May 2017 Acacia Quartet was invited by the Christine Raphael Foundation to give its European debut, where it performed concerts in Berlin and recorded a CD featuring three string quartets by Günter Raphael.
