Desdemona is a New York City-based ensemble devoted to creating unique and inventive performances of repertoire spanning from the Renaissance to world premieres. Described by the New Yorker as an “excellent young quartet,” Desdemona has performed at Spectrum, 1 Rivington, Cornelia Street Café, Aréte Gallery, Greenwich House Music School, and the CUNY Graduate Center, as well as at numerous home gatherings through Groupmuse. In Savannah, Georgia, Desdemona regularly appears on the Live Oak Concert Series, bringing classical and new music to a broader audience in venues from art galleries to kayak shops. Their 2019-20 season includes performances at the South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities, on the Savannah Philharmonic's Chamber Series, at 1 Rivington, and as part of the Prototype Festival for new opera. They recently recorded music by Paul Sikivie with Grammy-award-winning vocalist Cecile McLorin Salvant.
