The Ying Quartet

Season tickets are now on sale for the the 26th annual Neskowin Chamber Music series, which will begin with a performance by the Ying Quartet on Sunday, Oct. 13, at Camp Winema.

The quartet, made up of Janet, David and Philip Ying along with Robin Scott, performs a mix of classical and modern pieces. The group is also noted for its goal of bringing chamber music to small towns and a variety of venues, from schools to juvenile prisons and even the White House.

The seven-concert series will also feature performances from:

• November 3, 2019 — Borealis Wind Quintet

This Grammy-nominated group uses oboe, flute, bassoon, clarinet and horn to present a mix of classical pieces, opera arias and works for piano and winds.

The trio got its start 25 years ago in Australia and has toured extensively throughout the world in the years since, performing and conducting master classes in the US and overseas.

• February 9, 2020 — Miro Quartet

Based in Austin, Texas, the group specializes in finding new ways to explain the tradition of classical music to all types of audiences.

• March 1, 2020 — Alexander String Quartet

Formed in 1981, this group gained early fame as the first American quartet to win the London International String Quartet Competition. Since then, the ensemble has played throughout the US and Europe, noted for their interpretation of the works of Beethoven, Mozart and Shostakovich.

• April 5, 2020 — William Howard

Considered one of Britain’s leading pianists, Howard has performed in more than 40 countries as a soloist, chamber musician and instrumentalist. He founded the Shubert Ensemble in 1983 and played with that organization for its 35-year existence.
