The Pelargos Quartet was founded in 2016 and consists of violinists Hadewych de Vos (1999), Kaja Majoor (1998), violist Anna Jurriaanse (1997) and cellist Harry Broom (1997). All members are currently studying at or recently graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague. 

The Pelargos Quartet has a natural love for the standard string quartet repertoire, but also has a great interest for modern and living composers. They enjoy playing quartet a lot and it plays a big role in their lives. They learn from each other as musicians, colleagues and friends.
