“Their rock star status…is well deserved. Their classically honed technique mixed with grit and all-out passionate attack transfixes the audience…” The Sarasota Herald Tribune
Sybarite5 is the first string quintet ever selected as a winner of the Concert Artists Guild International Competition in its 60-year history. Comprising 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 U.S., 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.
From Mozart to Radiohead, Sybarite5’s eclectic repertoire and dynamic performance style is turning heads throughout the music world.
The Quintet’s debut EP disc Disturb the Silence, featuring music by Radiohead and Piazzolla, plus two original works written for Sybarite5, was released in spring 2011 and quickly reached the top 10 on Billboard’s Classical Crossover chart.
