THE INDIANAPOLIS QUARTET (TIQ), established in 2016, has been praised for “its energetic, often kinetic, enthusiasm, and each player’s virtuosity and flexibility (New York Concert Review). The members’ palpable rapport and interpretive skills bring about performances of a unique emotional style that have earned the group critical acclaim. Their extensive repertoire includes commissioned pieces and new works by Robert Paterson, Frank Felice, Meadow Bridgham, and John Berners. 

TIQ has given performances at Northwestern University in Chicago, Indiana Landmarks Center, Tippecanoe Chamber Music Society in Lafayette, Indiana, Illinois Wesleyan University, St. Francis@4 series in Cincinnati, and the Duckwall Artist Series at Butler University, among other engagements. They have served as ensemble-in-residence at the University of Indianapolis, Vermont's Taconic Music Festival, Sonoran Chamber Music Festival at Arizona State University, and at Indiana State University’s 53rd annual Contemporary Music Festival. 

Guest artist collaborations on their series at the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center in Indianapolis and on tour have included performances with Mark Kosower, Todd Palmer, Atar Arad, Eric Kim, Drew Petersen, Soyeon Kate Lee, Carrie Dennis, Nicholas Canellakis, and Orli Shaham.

The ensemble can be heard on composer Frank Felice’s monograph recording released in February 2020 on Enharmonic Records, "Reflections and Whimsies: Chamber Music for Strings and Voice."

TIQ garnered accolades for its Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall debut in March 2020, premiering Robert Paterson’s String Quartet No. 3 “in a tour de force of tight ensemble and interplay” (New York Classical Review). They released the world premiere recording of Robert Paterson's String Quartets 1-3 on American Modern Recordings in 2022. 

“Believers in the pleasure principle should try a new recording of Robert Paterson’s string quartets. [With the Indianapolis Quartet] he’s found ardent advocates for a personable brand of music-making that is fast, furious, and laced through with sardonic wit... Gloriously entertaining.” — Clive Paget, Musical America
