2012 Highlights and Exciting Projects for 2013
included salons, performances and outreach concerts all over the SF Bay Area, in Banff, CANADA and in NYC.
We were honored to have been chosen to participate in the International Chamber Music Artist-in-Residency at Banff There, we were privileged to be coached daily by members of the Cleveland, Juilliard and Brentano Quartets among others, as well as perform in Masterclasses and on stage in Rolston Hall.
We were also honored to be chosen by audition to compete in the Semi-Final Round of the Concert Artist Guild Competition in NYC. Though we did not advance to the finals, we were pleased with our show in our first competition as an ensemble. And we feel much better prepared for our next opportunity!
Perhaps our most cherished highlight was personal and professional mentorship of the internationally-acclaimed Alexander String Quartetwho have provided us with tools and skills that we will hold throughout our careers.
Finally, we were honored to become an official Steinway Ensemble in 2012.
is already shaping up to be another exciting time for growth, self-exploration and most importantly, the opportunity to share our passion for the power of music.
We have been selected to perform at the Chamber Music America's 35th National Conference Showcasein January.
We have also been selected to participate in what may be the last Winter Creative Residency at the International Banff Center.
Finally, we are looking forward to collaborating with the San Francisco Classical Voice to cultivate, engage and educate new audiences for classical music in the SF Bay Area and beyond. You can help with this mission by attneding the lecture-performances, telling your friends, and suggesting locations and venues where you think new audiences would find appealing to learn about classical music in a casual, intimate, warm and friendly environment.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS and SEE YOU in 2013!
