TorQ Percussion Quartet is one of Canada's premiere percussion ensembles and consistently brings new vitality to percussion repertoire and performance in every situation and opportunity. Renowned for their engaging performances, members Richard Burrows, Adam Campbell, Jamie Drake and Daniel Morphy are committed to making percussion music accessible to audiences that span generations and as The Toronto Star states "[TorQ] can stand proud among the growing throng of chamber percussion ensembles around the world."
Since coming together in 2004, their activities continue to flourish. These past two seasons have seen major inroads for the quartet into the United States with extensive tours in Alaska, Washington, Idaho and residencies in Ohio and Michigan. In 2016, TorQ had its first American symphonic collaboration with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. Some other international highlights include the International Percussion Quartet Festival (Luxembourg), Percussive Arts Society International Convention (San Antonio and Indianapolis) and with the Stuttgart Chamber Choir. This season sees their collaboration with both the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and Orchestre symphonique de Montréal.
Committed to commissioning new works for percussion quartet, TorQ has presented many Canadian and world premieres. Their discography consists of four recordings on Bedoint Records, the first of which titled TorQ, was awarded 3.5/4 stars by The Toronto Star. TorQ released their fourth album, Modulations, in November 2017. This new disc features mallet quartet music by Canadian composers Peter Hatch, Christos Hatzis, and TorQ’s own Daniel Morphy that highlight the diversity of the genre.
TorQ is actively involved in music education initiatives and performs approximately 80 school shows per year. They are also frequent educational collaborators with Soundstreams Canada and present master classes and workshops.
