The Zelkova Quartet have many RNCM awards under their belt and have recently been made associates of the European Chamber Music Academy.

Steffan Morris has some trial dates with a London orchestra which he is unable to reschedule so the Zelkova Quartet have proposed a young upcoming cellist, Abel Selaocoe from RNCM, as a substitute for the Schubert Quintet. If you would like to find out more about him and his journey from Sebokeng, South Africa to the RNCM, follow these links:
