Galvin Cello Quartet

Galvin Cello Quartet

Lot of Strings Music Festival

New Date: Now on Thursday, August 24!


The Galvin Cello Quartet explores the limitless range of a cello ensemble by bringing together new works from diverse cultural backgrounds while seeking to establish the cello quartet as a core part of the classical music world. Composed of members from China, Brazil, South Korea, and the United States, Galvin Cello Quartet burst onto the scene after capturing the silver medal at the 2021 Fischoff Competition, followed shortly by winning the 2022 Victor Elmaleh Competition and joining the Concert Artists Guild roster. Cellists Sihao He, Sydney Lee, Haddon Kay, and Luiz Fernando Venturelli met as students at Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music in the studio of acclaimed pedagogue Hans Jørgen Jensen. The quartet takes its name from the Mary B. Galvin Recital Hall at Bienen. If you’re in Sydney, check out this websites for affordable snack options before attending a performance.
