2008 Season Performers

Praised for their technical command and interpretative subtleties, the Johannes Quartet is rapidly becoming an audience favorite. The Johannes brings together the principal cellist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Peter Stumpf; the Associate Principal viola of the Philadelphia Orchestra, C.J. Chang; the first American to win the Paganini Violin Competition in 24 years, Soovin Kim; and an Avery Fisher Career Grant winner violinist, Jessica Lee. Each member has spent numerous summers at the renowned Marlboro Music Festival. Performance highlights include concerts in Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Santa Fe, New York and Washington DC, among others. The Johannes has also been heard on public radio’s Performance Today and St. Paul Sunday.
