International tours and festival successes have taken the group to Canada and the USA for twice-yearly visits as well as to Mexico, Korea, Australia, Scotland, Germany and the Netherlands, with recent performances in Poland and the Czech Republic.
Dedicated teachers as well as performers, the New Zealand String Quartet members teach individual lessons, conduct string classes, and coach chamber music ensembles. The New Zealand String Quartet receives funding support from Creative New Zealand and a variety of sponsors, including HSBC (principal sponsor), the Turnovsky Endowment Trust and the Adam Foundation. They have been Quartet-in-Residence at Victoria University Wellington since 1991.
