The Grammy Award-winning Ying Quartet, now in its third decade, has attained a position of prominence through its brilliantly communicative performances and fearlessly imaginative view of chamber music in today’s world. In addition to appearing regularly in celebrated concert halls around the world, the quartet has brought its performances to offices, schools, prisons, and the White House. Recent seasons have featured performances with jazz pianist Billy Childs, a tour of China, concerts for the Philadelphia and Phoenix Chamber Music Societies, and appearances as quartet-in-residence at the Bowdoin International Music Festival. The quartet’s ongoing LifeMusic commissioning project has included works by Billy Childs, Lera Auerbach, Lowell Liebermann, Sebastian Currier, and John Novacek.
