SYBARITE5: String Quintet
"Not your grandparents' chamber music." - The Observer
Date: Sunday, March 30, 2014
Time: 4:00 PM
Location: Sears Recital Hall, Jesse Philips Humanities Center
Taking on everything from Mozart to Radiohead, SYBARITE5 is known for its adventurous programming and style. A young, edgy but exceptionally accomplished ensemble, this quintet originally formed at the Aspen Music Festival. They are the first string quintet ever selected as winners of Concert Artists Guild International Competition in its 60 year history. Committed to crossing boundaries, they present performances through an "Alternative Venues Initiative" - performing at such diverse locations as Galapagos Artspace, the Apple Store, the Museum of Sex, the Core Club, and the Cutting Room, and at the Cell Theatre, where SYBARITE5 maintains a residency. Ongoing programs include the Radiohead Remixed Project, The Shuffle Effect, and New Music IDOL (featuring a series of short new works by student composers).
