Cellist David Ying is well known to concert audiences as the cellist of the Grammy Award winning Ying Quartet.  With the Quartet he has performed worldwide in celebrated music venues from Carnegie Hall to the Sydney Opera House.  The quartet is also known for its enterprising view of concert performance, which has led to visits to the White House as well as correctional facilities, and to business schools as well as hospitals. In its collaborations, the quartet has performed with chamber music greats Menachem Pressler, Gilbert Kalish, and Paul Katz, as well as explored new musical territory with folk musician Mike Seeger, the Turtle Island Quartet, and even actors, dancers, chefs and magicians.

A native of Montana, pianist Elinor Freer has built a versatile career as soloist and chamber musician, performing across the United States, Europe, and China. In Europe, Ms. Freer has given multiple performances at The Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and appeared at the Valery Gergiev Festival in Rotterdam. Other highlights include recordings for Dutch radio, performances at the International Musicians’ Seminar in Prussia Cove, England, and concerts at Moscow’s Gnessin Institute. She was also one of two American pianists selected to perform throughout China in tours designed to promote cultural relations.
