3.5: Ambrosia Quartet – January 14, 2017 (3pm)


Please join us for this FREE Concert at the Chrysler Museum. 
Please note special start time of 3pm.

“A Midwinter Afternoon’s Delight”

In 2002, four friends decided to join forces to explore their collective passion for chamber music. Thus, Hampton Roads’ Ambrosia Quartet was formed.

This dynamic ensemble will thrill you with their interpretations of the very best music written for string quartet, from classical favorites to the most recent compositions of celebrated contemporary composers. These talented individuals are all members of the Virginia Symphony Orchestra, but their backgrounds are as diverse as the music they play. Violinists Simon Lapointe and Mayu Cipriano hail from Québec and Tokyo, respectively; violist Beverly Kane Baker grew up locally in Hampton; and cellist Rebecca Gilmore came to the area from Charlotte, North Carolina. Their resumes collectively represent many years of study at the very best conservatories, including the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University, Indiana and Rice Universities, and the Juilliard School.

Locally renowned pianist, Mr. Chris Kypros, will also be on the program performing a Beethoven piano sonata on the Museum’s concert Steinway.
