In 2017 Affinity Collective announces new artistic collaborations and begins their next cycle project with seven performances of the Complete String Quartets of Leoš Janáček and Pavel Haas. Affinity Trio programs will feature repertoire by Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, and Dohnányi.

Winners of the 2015 Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) Chamber Music Competition, Affinity Collective represents the next generation of Australian chamber music. Their 2015 inaugural concert season featured new music by Australian composer Jack Symonds. 2016 marked their European debut, with participation in the 2016 Prussia Cove International Musicians Seminar and nine Affinity Collective concerts in the UK and Germany. Also in 2016, they performed an Australian première of The Complete String Quartets by Benjamin Britten and Andrzej Panufnik.

‘Affinity Collective represents the next generation of Australian classical superstars. Their performances are celebrated not only for phenomenal musicianship, but also for giving audiences an inside experience of classical chamber music.’  Play On Music

Affinity was formed in 2015 and won first prize in the ANAM Chamber Music Competition the same year. They have performed many concerts in Australia and Europe, sharing with audiences an inside experience of chamber music that is accessible and alive. They have been mentored by members of the Doric, Belcea, Brodsky and Kuss Quartets, and by Thomas Adès at the International Musicians Seminar Prussia Cove (UK). Affinity Quartet has given Australian première performances of the complete string quartets of Benjamin Britten, Andrzej Panufnik, Leoš Janácek and Pavel Haas. Affinity has been supported by the Australia Council for the Arts, the Czech Arts Fund, the City of Yarra, and many private donors through Creative Partnerships Australia. Affinity musicians perform with Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Australian World Orchestra, and with numerous other ensembles nationally.
