Suntory Hall Chamber Music Academy Special Concert
HONO Quartet
The 2nd Prize in String Quartet Category of the Osaka International Chamber Music Competition 2023

Suntory Hall will present a special concert featuring the Hono Quartet at the Blue Rose (Small Hall), marking their success at the prestigious Osaka International Chamber Music Competition & Festa held in May 2023. HONO Quartet was awarded the Second Prize and the Ambassador Award in the string quartet category of the competition: the highest honour awarded to a Japanese quartet since Quartet Excelsior in 1996.
HONO Quartet was formed in 2018 by four students of the Tokyo University of the Arts. They rapidly achieved success in several national competitions, and since September 2022 they have been furthering their studies as the fellow of the Suntory Hall Chamber Music Academy, while also advancing their individual careers as soloists or orchestral musicians.
