Chamber Music at the Clark presents: Ying Quartet
Los Angeles, CA 90018 United States + Google Map
The Ying Quartet first came to professional prominence in the early 1990s as the first recipient of an NEA Rural Residence Grant which led to them serving as the resident quartet of Jesup, Iowa–a farm town of 2,000 people. Playing before audiences of six to six hundred in homes, schools, churches, and banks, the Quartet had its first opportunities to use music and creative endeavor to help build community and authentic human connection. The Quartet considers its time in Jesup the foundation of its present musical life and goals.
The Quartet’s recent seasons have featured performances in major halls throughout the world including in New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and multiple tours throughout China. They also collaborate regularly with jazz pianist Billy Childs, bassist Xavier Foley, and PUSH Physical Theatre.
