Check out what we've been up to:


In Anna’s hometown of Baltimore, we have played 2 of 3 scheduled concerts this season (the last one is upcoming in May), and gave masterclasses at The Peabody Prep and The Baltimore School for the Arts, as well as an interactive performance for Orchkids.


Shortly after our first Baltimore visit, we flew to Des Moines for our sixth annual week-long residency, but this time we also played at the World Food Prize Laureate Ceremony in the Iowa State Capitol Building. Notice that we were less than a foot away from Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations!

After that, we collaborated on a special project, playing the Debussy quartet, by memory on stage with the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company at Florence Gould Hall - French Institute Alliance Française in NYC, and at The Kennedy Center in DC!

For our ongoing residency at the Stony Brook Pre-College Music Program, we just performed the second of our two concerts at the Staller Center for the Arts, and gave a presentation to the music students there, exploring the flexibility of time in music. It was really fun to uncover the beautiful subtleties of rubato in classical music. We are excited for the next installment of our SB residency - our week-long summer music camp for Long Island high school and middle school string players in August (application and more info here: http://www.stonybrook.edu/commcms/music/community_programs/summer.html)!
