Janus Quartet was formed in July 2016 under the guidance of Christopher Wilshere, with its mission to present high quality Mexican chamber music. Janus members are young, highly talented Mexican musicians with great musical futures.
The Quartet made its debut performance at the Palacio de la Cultura y la Comunicación (PALCCO) in Guadalajara Mexico, with recent performances at Festival Cadenza, Northern Lights Festival Febrero, and Clasicos Ensembles 2.0.
Founded by violinists Diana Carolina Laguna Rivas and Francisco Vidal Rivera Gonzalez, violist Luis Carlos Rincón Barrios, and cellist Areli Medeles Medina, the Quartet has studied with leading chamber musicians including Juan Miguel Hernandez of the Royal Academy of Music, the Gryphon Trio, and Mark Skazinetsky.
Janus Quartet was awarded the Proyecta Traslados grant for two consecutive years. This grant provided transport to North Summer Program Orchestra in Owen Sound, Ontario. There, as resident quartet and assistant teachers, they worked with top international musicians, including Canadian violinist Yolanda Bruno, and Western's Aaron Hodgson. They performed concerts in Owen Sound, Durham and Toronto.
