Formosa Quartet flew in to NYC for this shoot. The Quartet Members Jasmine Lin, Stefan Milenkovich, Che-Yen Chen, and Ru-Pei Yeh are so extremely talented and inspiring, they have already established themselves as leading solo, chamber, and orchestral musicians. With degrees from the Juilliard School, the New England Conservatory, the Curtis Institute of Music, they have performed in major venues around the United States, Asia, Europe, and South America, and have held title positions in the New York, Belgrade, San Diego and Cincinnati Symphonies.It was a blast shooting these world renowned musicians. Special thanks to Al Arundel at Sweetleaf cafe in LIC for hosting us, and to my friend Bert Esenherz for connecting us.It was a treat for cafe goers as I directed the members to play their instruments for a shot in the back space and they started to play a beautiful piece that filled the cafe, It was so enchanting, no one wanted the music to stop.
