The group has performed with the Bridge the Gap Chamber Series, the Meadows Virtuosi Players, the Texas Christian University CelloFest, the Open Classical Artist Series, Fort Worth Chamber Music Society, and Ensemble 75.

ABOUT BETH ANNE NEWDOME
We are privileged to honor the memory of Beth Anne Newdome by naming our young artist's program after her.
Beth was a beloved and frequent performer at the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival and played a crucial role in helping to get the Festival started. She was a consummate artist who "learned the integral difference of playing music and playing an instrument. In her hands, her violin gave voice to joy and sorrow, tears and laughter, interpreting emotion in a way words fail. Her upbeat personality made her a friend to many and coupled with her talent on the violin, made her a much sought after soloist." Beth fought cancer for over five years and died in February 2010.
