The Jupiter String Quartet just received a 2008 Avery Fisher Career Grant. In January 2007, the Quartet won the Cleveland Quartet Award from Chamber Music America, a prize which "honors and promotes a rising young string quartet whose artistry demonstrates that it is in the process of establishing a major career." These prestigious awards followed the Quartet's earlier distinctions in 2004, having captured the Grand Prize in the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and First Prize in the 8th Banff International String Quartet Competition, where they were also awarded the Szekely Prize for the best performance of a Beethoven quartet. The Austin Critics Table honored them with the Award for Outstanding Chamber Music Performance in 2006.
