Named after the Romer's Tree Frog endemic to Hong Kong, the Romer String Quartet is a genuinely local ensemble formed by four musicians all born and raised in Hong Kong. The quartet has been recognised locally and abroad as one of the most active string quartets in town since its debut in 2013.
Romer has toured Asia and the United States to perform at New York’s Carnegie Hall, Tokyo’s Toppan Hall, Shanghai Concert Hall, Sabah Art Gallery in Malaysia. It has performed at festivals including Hong Kong Arts Festival, Hong Kong World Cultures Festival, Beare’s Premiere Music Festival, Taiwan Hong Kong Week, and has also taken part in various local and overseas projects engaged by the Hong Kong Leisure and Cultural Services Department, Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (Tokyo), Radio Television Hong Kong, Hong Kong Sinfonietta, Hong Kong New Music Ensemble, Hong Kong Composers' Guild, Hong Kong Art Museum, Tai Kwun - Centre for Heritage and Arts, Vantage Music, and Premiere Performances of Hong Kong.
The quartet enjoys many cross-genre performances in collaboration with composers and multimedia artists. As part of a multimedia project titled 'Muted Situations', Romer featured in a pre-recorded video in the Asia Triennial Manchester in the UK, Hong Kong Art Basel, and the Hong Kong New Vision Arts Festival.
