Hi - 

One of the hottest 21st Century ensembles, SYBARITE5, meets a Rome Prize rising young composer, Dan Visconti, when BEATBOX: Concerto for String Quintet & Orchestra receives its world premiere on March 14, 2015. The first concerto ever written for string quintet and orchestra is inspired by America's rich heritage of folk and vernacular styles.

SYBARITE5 has attracted enthusiastic audiences of all ages around the country with their fresh and dynamic programming, and Dan Visconti has written works for the Minnesota Orchestra, Kronos Quartet and the Berlin Philharmonic's Scharoun Ensemble.

We hope you'll come hear this fascinating collaboration with one of the three commissioning orchestras below. Please, just let us know what works for you.  Julie Gaitens or Chris Williams will be happy to arrange tickets  for you.

Come celebrate this exciting new addition to the repertoire by one of today's most captivating artists.
