The Toomai String Quintet, winner of the 92nd St. Y’s 2007 “Music Unlocked!” Competition for emerging ensembles, was a pilot ensemble for Carnegie Hall’s “Musical Connections”  program that has brought an array of educational programs to students.  Formed in 2007 at the Juilliard School, the quintet is named after Rudyard Kipling’s short story “Toomai of the Elephants” in which a young boy journeys into the jungle to witness the dance of the wild elephants.  Toomai String Quintet aspires to cultivate a similar sense of curiosity and discovery by searching for diverse music and sharing it with their audience.  On this concert titled “Songs Without Words”, the quintet will play music derived from or inspired by the vocal tradition.

Jan. 16, 2013ANDREW GARLAND, BARITONE
American baritone Andrew Garland, winner of national and international competitions, has been saluted by The New York Times as having a “distinctly American presence” with a “big voice” who is “an able and comfortable performer, and a sincere one.” Garland is best known for his highly communicative style of singing.  He brings to each genre a powerful voice and extremely sensitive delivery.  Composer Lee Hoiby commented: “… none has brought more depth of musical understanding than did Andrew Garland. Quite apart from the special beauty of his voice is his distinctive feeling for the musical line. He pulls the listener irresistibly into the music. In my judgment, he is a rare talent.
