Chautauquans who attend the Logan Chamber Music Series concert at 4 p.m. today in Elizabeth S. Lenna Hall will be given a music program, but in small italic letters at the bottom, it will read, “Program subject to change.”
Sybarite5, which won the Concert Artists Guild Competition in 2011 — a first for a string quintet — rarely has a set order of music when entering a concert. Today, it will provide a program. Usually, however, the group does not provide one and is known to change pieces 30 seconds before beginning, compensating by posting programs with the pieces and composers on its website and Facebook page.
The string quintet — the first of its kind performing in the chamber music series this season — is comprised of violinists Sami Merdinian and Sarah Whitney, violist Angela Pickett, cellist Laura Metcalf and bassist Louis Levitt. The group has performed for the Dalai Lama and in venues including the Library of Congress and the Museum of Sex.
