“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 group of its kind 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 rules.
Dubbed the “Millennial Kronos,” SYBARITE5’s eclectic repertoire from Bowie to Radiohead and Akiho to Assad combined with its commanding performance style is turning heads throughout the music world. The quintet’s debut album, Disturb the Silence, quickly reached the top ten on the Billboard charts. The group’s follow-up album, Everything in its Right Place, was released at Carnegie Hall to critical acclaim. SYBARITE5 recently completed its latest album, Outliers, featuring all new works from American composers. It will be available in the 2017-2018 season.
This is The Lark’s 3rd collaboration with Lincoln’s Meadowlark Music Festival. Director, Hans Sturm, has hand-picked this wonderful quintet to perform for us. We hope you enjoy !! To find out more about the Meadowlark Music Festival CLICK HERE.
