Orchestra musicians perform with the Danish String Quartet

Cal 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).
