One of New Zealand’s most estab­lished cham­ber ensem­bles, the Jade String Quar­tet have won the hearts of Kiwis with their exhil­a­rat­ing per­for­mances, musi­cal artistry, and daz­zling string play­ing skills.

Jade have their own con­cert series, Jade at the Pah (with thanks to Sir James Wallace).

Wel­come to our 5th sea­son at the Pah Home­stead, TSB Bank Wal­lace Arts Cen­tre.This year we are get­ting back to our grass roots. Music we love and want to play to eager ears.

We are priv­i­leged to have 4 world pre­mieres to per­form, writ­ten for us by well known New Zealand composers.

Play­ing an eclec­tic mix of music for string quar­tet rang­ing from Vivaldi to Hen­drix, Jade have won a spe­cial place in NZ’s music scene, as a group that can cater for both young and old, tra­di­tional and mod­ern tastes alike, all with a musi­cal pas­sion that is rarely seen. They have com­mis­sioned and pre­miered many works by NZ composers.

All based in Auck­land and Prin­ci­pal play­ers with the Auck­land Phil­har­mo­nia, Jade are Miranda Adams and William Han­fling on vio­lins, Robert Ash­worth on viola, and David Gar­ner on cello.
