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.
From Mozart to Radiohead, Sybarite5’s eclectic repertoire and dynamic performance style is turning heads throughout the music world. The Quintet’s debut EP, Disturb the Silence, featuring music by Radiohead, Piazzolla, and original works written for Sybarite5, was self released in 2011 and quickly reached the top ten on the Billboard charts.
Recent performance highlights include Carnegie Hall, the Library of Congress, Washington Performing Arts Society, Aspen Music Festival, Sun Valley Center for the Arts, Tuckamore Festival in Canada, New Docta Festival in Argentina, and the Osaka Festa in Japan. The group has also performed on the CBS Early Show and for his Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Comprised of Sami Merdinian and Sarah Whitney (violins), Angela Pickett (viola), Laura Metcalf (cello), and Louis Levitt (bass), Sybarite5 is the first string quintet ever selected as a winner of the Concert Artists Guild International Competition in its 60 year history.
