The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center announced today the appointment of two outstanding young ensembles, the Amphion String Quartet and the Danish String Quartet, to its prestigious CMS Two program. The three-year residency will begin with the 2013–2014 season.
Three of the four members of the Amphion Quartet are alumni of the Yale School of Music: cellist Mihai Marica (’04 CERT, ’08 AD) and violinists Katie Hyun (’09 AD) and David Southorn (’09 MM, ’10 AD). The quartet’s violist is Wei-Yang Andy Lin.
In its announcement, CMS Two noted that both quartets were “chosen from an international pool of applicants by a distinguished panel of performers, educators, and artistic administrators” and and that “each is an award-winning ensemble with exceptional musical training.”
CMS Two offers its members three full seasons of participation in every facet of CMS activity, including performances on all stages during the New York concert season; national and international tour appearances; recordings on both the in-house label (CMS Studio Recordings) and the CMS Live! digital download series; concert broadcasts on American Public Media’s Performance Today, the CMS national radio series, and Live From Lincoln Center television broadcasts; and multiple educational outreach opportunities.
