About

Romer String Quartet

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, Taiwan Hong Kong Week.

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. Romer is also featured in the recently-released CD by composer Austin Yip, “Eurydice: Ballet de la Nuit”, and album “Freespace Mixedtape Vol. 3”, produced by the West Kowloon Cultural District. In 2021, Romer collaborated with the Kamishibai Studio HK and launched a series of online music-animation supported by the Arts Go Digital Platform Scheme" of the Hong Kong Arts Development Council. 


As teaching artists, Romer String Quartet was the Ensemble-in-Residence of The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2014-15. It is the Quartet-in-Residence of Premiere Performances of Hong Kong.
