Sinfonia Classical Connections feat. SYBARITE5
Sinfonia Gulf Coast Classical Connections Series features SYBARITE5 at Grace Lutheran Church on Friday, January 26, 2018 at 7:30pm. Tickets available online at sinfoniagulfcoast.org.
SYBARITE5 is one of the most exhilarating string groups on the scene today. Performing their compilation "Everything In Its Right Place," a melange of Mozart to Piazzolla to Radiohead, the quintet joins Sinfonia's full orchestra. Also on the program is Beethoven’s "Symphony no. 2", Rossini’s overture to "The Italian in Algiers" and Stravinksy’s whimsical "Suite no. 2".
“Their rock star status…is well deserved. Their classically honed technique mixed with grit and all out passionate attack transfixes the audience…” That is how the Sarasota Herald Tribune described SYBARITE5, the first string quintet ever to win the Concert Artists Guild International Competition. Comprised of Sami Merdinian and Sarah Whitney, violins; Angela Pickett, viola; Laura Metcalf, cello; and Louis Levitt, bass, SYBARITE5 has taken audiences by storm all across the US, forever changing the perception of chamber music performance. From the moment their bows hit the strings, this quintet of talented, diverse musicians takes the audience on an exciting ride that engages the senses and redefines the rule. sybarite5.org
