The Chorum Quartet is a string quartet stemming from the Chorum Ensemble, founded in 2006 by co-Artistic Directors Charles-Antoine Fréchette and Raphaël Dubé, and several young, high-calibre musicians from Quebec, the majority of whom are graduates of the Conservatoire de Musique du Québec in Montréal. The full ensemble is made up of a dozen members; in addition to the quartet, it includes a wind quintet, a piano, a double bass, and percussion. The Chorum Ensemble performs in groups of varying sizes and has a mandate to break down the barriers between classical music and new creations, producing and presenting programs that are both accessible and original.
Since it was founded, the Chorum Ensemble has produced and presented over twenty concerts, tackling the most diverse music in the classical and modern repertoires with an appealing, detailed, and continually renewed approach.
