"Their rock star status'is well deserved. Their classically honed technique mixed with grit and all out passionate attack transfixes the audience...' That is how the Sarasota Herald Tribune described Sybarite5, the first string quintet ever selected as a winner of the Concert Artists Guild International Competition and Sylvia Ann Hewlett Adventurous Artist Prize.

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.

From Mozart to Radiohead, Sybarite5's eclectic repertoire and dynamic performance style is turning heads throughout the music world: ''that impassioned playing, those hard-driving rhythms, the blissed-out faces of the mostly young audience'Genuine, spontaneous'excitement' - The Washington Post
