Out of 48 competing ensembles from across the USA and around the world, the Old City String Quartet won the coveted Grand Prize of the 2010 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition. Joel Link (violin), Bryan Lee (violin), Milena Pajaro-van de Stadt (viola) and Camden Shaw (cello) are from The Curtis Institute of Music, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In addition the quartet participated in a Winner's Tour of the Midwestern United States last October, and performed several concerts in the Emilia Romagna Festival in Italy in 2011.

The Old City String Quartet has won the praise of some of the greatest chamber musicians of our time. Formed at the Curtis Institute of Music in 2008, the ensemble draws from the musical lineage of both the Vermeer and Guarneri String Quartets, but brings a youthful enthusiasm and musical conviction to the repertoire that is truly its own. Joseph Silverstein said of the group: "The Old City String Quartet is one of the finest string quartets I have ever heard. I expect to see the ensemble reach international acclaim." The ensemble's recording of the Mendelssohn and Debussy quartets, released in 2009 by the audiophile label Unipheye Music©, was awarded the Blue Moon award by the highly respected audiophile website The album's review by David Kan proclaimed that "the maturity in these interpretations is phenomenal and disproportionate to the age [of the group.]" Members of the Quartet have appeared as soloists with some of the world's finest orchestras, including the Philadelphia Orchestra, Tokyo Philharmonic, Kansas City Symphony and BBC Concert Orchestra.
