On December 14, 2014, the celebrated Amphion String Quartet played a special holiday performance at Tilles Center of CW Post Long Island University in Brookville. The quartet consists of talented violinists Katie Hyun and David Southorn, violist Wei-Yang Andy Lin along with cellist Mihai Marica; all of whom possess a seemingly infinite talent and dynamic which, in true holiday form, was simply magical.
The breathtaking performance, which featured music originally composed by Beethoven, Hugo Wolf and Grieg, was the latest result of the quartet’s formation in 2009. That year, the musicians completed a performance at Sprague Hall of Yale School of Music. An overwhelmingly positive response encouraged the pursuit of the Amphion String Quartet.
