The Ying Quartet, consisting of violinists Robin Scott and Janet Ying, violist Phillip Ying, and cellist David Ying, first gained professional prominence in the early 1990s as the resident quartet of Jesup, Iowa, a farm town of 2,000 people. They performed in diverse settings, from homes and schools to churches and banks, making music an integral part of community life. As the quartet-in-residence at the prestigious Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY, the Ying Quartet teaches in the string department and leads a rigorous, sequentially designed chamber music program.
