A group of young musicians at the National Center for the Performing Arts. The seven musicians have added a clarinet, flute and harp to the classic string quartet. Through the reimagined chamber music classics, the audience get to experience the less daunting but more entertaining side of classical music.

Seven young chamber musicians, experienced in playing solo as well as together, form this brand new septet.

Aside from the classic cast of two violins, a viola and a cello, the septet also features a clarinet, flute and harp.

With playful charm and nimble figuration, the ensemble brings to life the classic chamber pieces of Haydn, Bach and Mozart.

The use of the harp has been a real surprise for audiences.

"I like the harp the most; it's the first time I've seen a live harp performance. One of the pieces made me think of Alice in Wonderland."

"The program is very diverse. Unlike a conventional concert, there's a lot of surprises, including the pairing of instruments and the choice of music."
The septet will put on another performance on Friday.
