Ying Quartet--three brothers, one sister--to perform at BYU Feb 28

The Ying Quartet, an all-sibling ensemble from Chicago, will be performing at Brigham Young University Wednesday, Feb. 28, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall in the Harris Fine Arts Center.

Tickets are $12 or $8 with a BYU or student ID. For ticket information, contact the Fine Arts Ticket Office, call (801) 422-7664 or visit artix.byu.edu.

Timothy and Janet Ying will play the violin, Phillip Ying will play the viola and David Ying will perform on the cello. They will be performing selections by Shostakovich, Weinberg and Tchaikovsky.

The Ying siblings began their career as an ensemble in 1992 in the farm town of Jesup, Iowa (population 2,000) as the first artists involved in the National Endowment for the Arts Chamber Music Rural Residencies Program. While the quartet was in Jesup, its exceptional musical qualities earned it the 1993 Naumburg Chamber Music Award.

The Yings’ enthusiasm for performing in diverse settings has led to concerts in Carnegie Hall, the White House, hospitals and juvenile prisons. Frequent musical collaborations have included such artists as Menahem Pressler, Paul Katz, Gilbert Kalish, Jon Nakamatsu, and the St. Lawrence and Turtle Island String Quartets. The EMI Classics recording of works by Osvaldo Golijov on which the Ying Quartet appears with the St. Lawrence Quartet, was nominated for a 2003 Grammy Award.
