"Their classically honed technique mixed with grit and all out passionate attack transfixes the audience, whether on Piotr Szewczyk’s 'The Rebel' or Radiohead’s 'Weird Fishes.'" -Gayle Williams, Sarasota Herald-Tribune
As Artists in Residence, Sybarite5 will work with the students of the University of North Florida Music Flagship Program, culminating in a performance with both students and quintet.
From the moment that their bows hit the strings, Sybarite5 engages the senses and redefines the rules. The Shuffle Effect sets a new standard in audience experience. The traditional set program list is replaced with an iPod containing the group’s repertoire. The program for the concert is determined Live from the stage, as the players press shuffle on the iPod and play whatever piece shows up on the screen. Audiences must be prepared for anything – from Radiohead to Mozart, The Shuffle Effect allows the musicians to showcase their skill, innovation and vibrancy. This group of talented young musicians is changing the face of classical music and redefining how chamber music is performed and enjoyed.
