After their debut at Carnegie Hall in New York City, they have made remarkable strides within the chamber music community, been guests on National Public Radio and performed at numerous chamber festivals and concerts around the country.

This chamber performance will feature works by Mozart, Brahms and Villa-Lobos.

Its members perform with prestigious organizations including the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, Chicago Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra and the London Symphony.
