“An evening of musical perfection...”

​“...musicians showed both individual brilliance and collective versatility.”             -The Borrego Sun​



From New York City, FRISSON features the best and brightest of classical music's rising stars as well as established artists. Frisson showcases a myriad of rarely-performed masterworks and new music, and the group expands and contracts into a variety of ensembles, including quintets, sextets, nonets, and a small chamber orchestra. The ensemble performs in over 25 cities annually including appearances in such diverse venues as the Morgan Library and Museum in New York City, for the Da Camera Society in Los Angeles and at the Bermuda Festival. The group’s name is taken from the French word Frisson which means “a sudden burst of excitement” or “a shiver and a thrill.”
