KASA was founded in the summer of 2016 by Andy Liang, Aaron Schwartz, Stephanie Price-Wong and Kyle Price. The quartet performs an array of musical styles ranging from classical to gypsy jazz and various genres in between. The group first realized their hybrid of interests collectively during summers of performing together at the Caroga Lake Music Festival, culminating in a prizewinning performance in the Senior Division at the 2012 OSTA Biennial Chamber Music Competition. This led to performances and masterclass appearances facilitated by the Chamber Music Connection, a prestigious chamber music program in Columbus, Ohio, at which the members of KASA have all acted as guest artists and faculty over the years. As a quartet, KASA won the Grand Prize in the 2017 Collegiate Division of the 4th Annual Coltman Chamber Music Competition held in Austin, Texas. Individually, the four have won multiple national solo and chamber music competitions, been featured on NPR’s From the Top! Radio show, held professional orchestra positions, and frequently appear in performances across the globe in solo, chamber music and orchestral settings. KASA looks to convey the magic of chamber music and the diverse possibilities of the quartet genre through engaging, memorable and free-spirited performances and education events.
