Sinfonia Gulf Coast presents the third concert of the mainstage season that celebrates the “classics” with a twist. SYBARITE5, the second installment of the Silver Sands Premium Outlet’s Classical Connections Series features one of the most exhilarating string groups on the scene today.

The group, a string quintet consisting of violinists Sami Merdinian and Sarah Whitney, violist Angela Pickett, cellist Laura Metcalf and bassist Louis Levitt – take audiences on an exciting ride that engages the senses and redefines the rules. The innovative group critics have described as “a game changer for the chamber music world,” will be performing their compilation “Everything In Its Right Place,” a mélange of Mozart to Piazzolla to Radiohead, the quintet joins Sinfonia Gulf Coast’s full orchestra. Also on the program is Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 2,” Rossini’s overture to “The Italian in Algiers” and Stravinsky’s whimsical “Suite No. 2.”

“We are thrilled to welcome back SYBARITE5 to Sinfonia Gulf Coast’s stage. Our mission is to ‘redefine’ the symphony experience by presenting a fresh take on the classics, and this group does just that, making them a perfect fit within our season line up,” said Demetrius Fuller, Music and Artistic Director for Sinfonia Gulf Coast.
