Announcing the New York Philharmonic String Quartet

Posted January 26, 2017

New York Philharmonic String Quartet 

We’re excited to announce the formation of the New York Philharmonic String Quartet, comprising Concertmaster Frank Huang, Principal Associate Concertmaster Sheryl Staples, Principal Viola Cynthia Phelps, and Principal Cello Carter Brey.

The quartet will make its debut in John Adams’s Absolute Jest in New York and on the EUROPE / SPRING 2017 tour, both led by Music Director Alan Gilbert. Also during the tour, the quartet will perform Dvořák’s American Quartet at Hamburg’s newly opened Elbphilharmonie. This summer they’ll perform at the Philharmonic’s annual Bravo! Vail summer residency.

In the 2017–18 season, the quartet will make its New York recital debut at 92nd Street Y on November 12, 2017, performing Mendelssohn’s String Quartet in F minor; Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 4; and Dvořák’s String Quartet in F major, American (co-presented by the New York Philharmonic and 92nd Street Y).
