Ohio University will welcome Sybarite5 to the Baker Center Theater on Tuesday, April 1 at 7:30 p.m.

As the first string quintet ever selected as a winner of the Concert Artists Guild International Competition in its 60-year history, the group is described as "a must see spring performance for all ages."

From Mozart to Radiohead, Sybarite5's eclectic repertoire and dynamic performance style has been attracting fans throughout the music world.

The quintet’s debut EP disc Disturb the Silence, featuring music by Radiohead, Piazzolla and two original works, was released in spring 2011 and quickly reached the top 10 on the Billboard charts.

The group’s follow-up CD, Everything in its Right Place, is a continuation of the Radiohead Remixed Project and was released in November 2012 on the CAG Records label.

Tickets for Sybarite5 are available at the Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium ticket office at 740-593-1780 or online at www.ohio.edu/performingarts.
