WEEHAWKEN AND BEYOND -- The UBS Atrium Series, a free, indoor concert series curated by the Hudson River Performing Arts Center (HRPAC), will hold its final show of the season this Wednesday, May 15 at 12:30 p.m. The concert, featuring the string quartet Sybarite 5, will take place in the atrium of the UBS Building, located at 1000 Harbor Boulevard in Weehawken.
From Mozart to Radiohead, Sybarite 5’s eclectic repertoire and dynamic performance style is turning heads throughout the music world. From the moment their bows hit the strings, this quintet of talented, diverse musicians takes the audience on an exciting ride that engages the senses and redefines the rules.
Originally formed at the Aspen Music Festival in Colorado, Sybarite 5 was the first strong quintet admitted to the Aspen Advance String Quartet Studies program, where they worked with noted musicians Earl Carlyss of the Julliard Quartet and bassist Edgar Meyer. It was also the first string quartet to win the Concert Artists Guild International Competition in that esteemed organization’s 60 year history.
The group has performed at the Library of Congress, Lincoln Center, the Tishman Auditorium, Bohemian National Hall, and on CBS’ “The Early Show.” Sybarite 5’s debut release, “Disturb the Silence” made its debut at #11 on Billboard’s Classical Crossover chart.
