Orchestra musicians perform with the Danish String Quartet

201602_DanishQ_111wCal Performances invited the Danish String Quartet to perform at Zellerbach Hall in February. Quartet members also performed with UC Berkeley Symphony Orchestra principals for an appreciative capacity crowd in a free Friday noon concert. The program included the Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy Octet in E-flat major, op. 20. The talented and fortunate few orchestra members who performed were Lucia Petito, concert master; Peter Hintz, violin; Jane Kim, viola; and Mosa Tsay, cello. The crowd cheered when Mosa caught the bouquet with one hand, thrown from opposite side of the stage; her other hand was holding the cello (see Mosa easily catching blurred flowers in photo above).
