Each member contributes remarkable talent and unique abilities to the group’s performances.
Boasting an illustrious career that has spanned several decades, Mr. Zukerman is recognized as a musical genius and inspiration to the next generation of artists through the educational initiatives with which he is involved.

As a Canadian pianist who regularly performs as a recitalist and orchestral soloist at venues across North America, Ms. Cheng consistently garners praise for her outstanding technique.
