The New York Philharmonic String Quartet comprises four principal musicians from the New York Philharmonic: Concertmaster Frank Huang; Principal Associate Concertmaster Sheryl Staples; Principal Viola Cynthia Phelps; and Principal Cello Carter Brey. The group was formed in January, during the Philharmonic’s 175th anniversary season; the New York Philharmonic String Quartet  made its debut as the solo ensemble in John Adams’s Absolute Jest in New York in March, and reprised the work on the Orchestra’s Europe / Spring 2017 tour. All four members are multiple prize winners, have appeared as concerto soloists with the Philharmonic and orchestras around the world, and have appeared frequently in the Philharmonic’s chamber music series at David Geffen Hall and Merkin Concert Hall.
