The Ulysses String Quartet has been praised for their “expressive intensity and perfection of ensemble” (American Record Guide) and for possessing “the kind of chemistry many quartets long for, but rarely achieve” (The Strad).

Founded in the summer of 2015, the group won first prize in the 2018 Schoenfeld International String Competition and the grand prize and gold medal in the senior string division of the 2016 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition. Ulysses also finished first in the American Prize and won second prize at the Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in 2017. The quartet garnered a career development grant in the 2016 Banff International String Quartet Competition and were winners of the Vietnam International Music Competition this past August.

In September 2019, the Ulysses Quartet was appointed to the prestigious post of Lisa Arnold Fellows of the Juilliard School in New York City, where they will serve as the institutions graduate resident string quartet. 

The members of Ulysses hold degrees from the Juilliard School, Manhattan School of Music, New England Conservatory and Yale University, and are represented worldwide by Judson Management Group in New York City.
