Hello! We're the Madkoi Quartet, made up of violinists Rose Xiu Yi Kow and Yoonjung Hwang, violist Jay Julio, and cellist Camille Dietrich. We began playing together in 2014, during our freshman year at the Manhattan School of Music, and have since played shows at the Cornelia Street Cafe, the Cutting Room, and the headquarters of the AIDS charity (RED), which was made possible through a collaboration with Groupmuse, an organization that organizes classical music house parties in New York City apartments and across the United States. We're looking forward to upcoming concerts at Columbia University's Postcrypt Coffeehouse, Prohibition, and the Hudson Terrace, where we'll be featured by Italian fashion magazine Uomo Moderno at a masked ball attended by the prince of Italy, Emanuele Filiberto, the guest of honor! We Madkoi members would be thrilled to see you at these shows, but would be even more thrilled if you considered voting for us to play at the Lincoln Center College Cabaret!
We've been lucky to have been asked to play on many stages in New York City, but we've never performed at Lincoln Center. Playing together in one of the most amazing venues—and alongside some of the greatest collegiate talent in the United States—would be a dream come true.
