Included in the Washington Post’s 2017 list of the 35 most significant women composers in history, identity has always been at the center of composer/pianist Gabriela Lena Frank’s music. Frank explores her multicultural heritage most ardently through her compositions. Inspired by the works of Bela Bartók and Alberto Ginastera, Frank is something of a musical anthropologist. She has traveled extensively throughout South America and her pieces often reflect and refract her studies of Latin American folklore, incorporating poetry, mythology, and native musical styles into a western classical framework that is uniquely her own.

Violinist Hyeyung Julie Yoon has been a member of the Chiara String Quartet since 2000. The quartet’s discography include Brahms by Heart which was released on Azica Records and includes Johannes Brahms’s Complete String Quartets and String Quintet No. 2 in G Major, Op. 111 with violist Roger Tapping. Ms. Yoon is currently a Hixson-Lied Artist-in-Residence at the Glenn Korff School of Music at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and was the Blodgett Artist-in-Residence at Harvard University from 2008-2014. She is a graduate of the Juilliard School where she studied with Sally Thomas and coached with the members of the Juilliard String Quartet.
