Quodlibet Ensemble is making an appearance not to be missed on Thursday night, featuring special guest artist Ani Kavafian!
Violinist Ani Kavafian continues to enjoy a busy career as a chamber musician, soloist, and teacher. A full professor at Yale, she has taught at the Mannes and Manhattan schools of music, Queens College, McGill, and Stony Brook universities. As a soloist, she has appeared with the New York Philharmonic, the Philadelphia and Cleveland orchestras, and the Los Angeles and Saint Paul chamber orchestras.
Quodlibet Ensemble is a group of unique, accomplished, and dedicated musicians who seek to learn from each other and explore the possibilities of an abundant musical spectrum. The players hold degrees from the Yale School of Music, Curtis Institute, Juilliard, New England Conservatory, and Harvard University among others. Currently they pursue careers as performing artists in both solo and prominent chamber ensembles ranging from early music group the Sebastians, to contemporary ensemble New Morse Code, to Brooklyn Rider, Attacca Quartet, Aizuri Quartet, and more. The group was founded to be a place where a wide variety of musical ideas can come into realization, bringing together performers from different backgrounds (mainly early music and modern).
