“HYPER-ACCURATE YET FIERCELY VIVACIOUS”  (i care if you listen), ”Smart as a fox” (Limelight Magazine), and more fascinating than a jar of lightning, Sybarite5 is dazzling audiences around the world with their luxurious sound and unexpected programming

The group has performed in 44 states and counting,"from the Library of Congress, (Washington DC) to Anchorage Concert Association, (Alaska) as well as concerts in Sybarite5’s home of New York City at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, National Sawdust, the Apple Store and a decade residency at the Cell. In addition to its own groundbreaking, portable music festival, Sybarite5 has appeared at festivals including Ravinia, Caramoor, Wolf Trap, Grand Teton, Aspen, Interlochen, and Chautauqua. International appearances include Canada’s Tuckamore Music Festival, the New Docta Music Festival in Cordoba, Argentina, and the Osaka Festa in Osaka, Japan

Recently dubbed “the millennial Kronos” (Theater Jones), Sybarite5 is chamber music’s most dynamic ensemble taking listeners on a musical journey of staggering breadth and depth with new works by living composers, as well as the group’s favorite selections from Radiohead, Coltrane, Komitas, Piazzolla, and Pete Seeger... but as Strings Magazine says “that doesn’t even begin to describe the range of their eclecticism or the depth of their repertoire."
