The Abeo Quartet formed at Juilliard in 2018. They chose the name Abeo, an expression of joy in a Nigerian dialect, to reflect their love for playing chamber music and sharing it with others.

The quartet won First Prize and the Audience Favorite Prize in the 2022 Yellow Springs Chamber Music Competition for Emerging Professional Ensembles. Other honors include Silver Medals in both the 2022 Chesapeake International Chamber Music Competition and the 2019 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition.

In September 2022, the Abeo Quartet began a two-year residency at the University of Delaware under the mentorship of the Calidore String Quartet.
