Carpe Diem String Quartet
One of the most unique and sought-after chamber ensembles on the concert stage today, the Carpe Diem String Quartet is a boundary-breaking ensemble that has earned widespread critical and audience acclaim for its innovative programming and electrifying performances. Carpe Diem defies easy classification with programming that reflects its passions for Gypsy, tango, folk, pop, rock, and jazz-inspired music, and has become one of America's premiere “indie” string quartets, without sacrificing its commitment to the traditional quartet repertoire.
May Phang (pronounced pong) has performed on three continents, including solo recitals and chamber music concerts in venues such as the Goethe Institute and Victoria Concert Hall (Singapore), Chapelle historique du Bon Pasteur and Place-des-Arts (Montreal), the Concertgebouw (Netherlands), and the Kennedy Center for the Arts, the National Gallery, and the Chicago Cultural Center in the United States. Called “one talented pianist” by the web community Ureshi Now, her playing is described as “fluid and masterful” by Young Audiences of Indiana, and “magnificent” with ”…a mix of sensitivity and bravura” by Classical New Jersey.
