Dynamic trio to play Quadra

Infinitus, a new Vancouver-based string trio with a fresh approach that will invigorate your passion for the genre and widen your listening horizons

Infinitus, a new Vancouver-based string trio with a fresh approach that will invigorate your passion for the genre and widen your listening horizons, if not by their technical skill then by their innovative repertoire and their youthful good humour, will be performing at the Quadra Island Community Centre on Sunday, April 17 at 7 p.m.

Formed in 2002, Infinitus began as a duo of musical twins, Alex Cheung (cello) and Anthony Cheung (viola).  With the addition of John “Adidam” (a nickname-acronym for All Day I Dream About Music) Littlejohn on violin, the group has evolved into a dynamic trio.  Known for their unique sound and upbeat performance style, Infinitus’ program features Classical works and jazz, Latin and hip-hop arrangements as well as original compositions.  They are equally comfortable with Pachelbel’s Canon, Leroy Anderson’s Jazz Pizzicato or the dances of Rimsky-Korsakov.  Infinitus won the grand prize at the 2003 Friends of Chamber Music Competition and have been broadcast on OMNI/CityTV, CBC Radio One and Two, and National Public Radio.  They perform regularly at the Sonic Boom festival, they run their own concert series in Vancouver, and they are the Ensemble-In-Residence at the Young Artist Experience Summer Chamber Music Program at UBC.

Alex and Anthony both hold degrees in Music and Kinesiology from the University of Michigan and the Peabody Conservatory.  Alex is presently on the faculty of the BC Conservatory of Music and is a substitute for the Vancouver Symphony.  Anthony plays with other musical ensembles and was the recipient of the Martin Luther King Spirit Award in 2000.  John Littlejohn met the twins at the University of Michigan while completing his Masters of Music Degree and a graduate performance diploma in violin.

Infinitus is dedicated to quality outreach and often performs for schools, nursing homes, hospitals, on Native reserves, at fundraisers and correctional facilities, giving over 300 outreach concerts throughout North America since 2006.

Tickets for their Quadra performance are available at the usual outlets:  The Music Plant in Campbell River and on Quadra at Hummingbird Office and Art Supply and Quadra Crafts.  Advance tickets are $17, students 16 and under admitted free with an adult.  Door price: $20.
