The Ying Quartet give their music a distinctive Asian flavor, incorporating traditional Chinese elements to present a “Dim Sum,” or sampling, of sweet and savory musical offerings. They are now in their second decade and regularly perform in many of the world’s most prominent concert halls such as Carnegie Hall, the White House and the Sydney Opera House. The quartet has won a Grammy Award for their collaboration with the Turtle Island Quartet and has also been nominated for Best Chamber Music Performance.
