Violist Carrie Frey is a regular performer with New York’s Petros Klampanis Group and Wet Ink Large Ensemble. She has performed in Switzerland, Japan, and more as an orchestra member.

Cellist Julia Henderson performs with a variety musicians as a freelancer and teacher. Her gigs have taken her to The John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, Montserrat Music Festival in the Caribbean, and festivals in Colorado, Wisconsin, and beyond.

The ensemble, known for creating unique performances for a variety of concertgoers, will play selections from the Classical to Contemporary periods, including works by Haydn, Kodaly, Clara Schumann, Brustad, and Brahms.
