Sonnet Ensemble Spring Concert

Established in 2013 SONNET ENSEMBLE is a conductorless string orchestra based in the Silicon Valley and San Francisco Bay Area. Rehearsing and performing without a conductor, each member is allowed greater input and voice in the music-making process.

Through the name SONNET (Son, latin for sound; and Net for network), the ensemble’s wish is to convey its dual purpose and inspiration—to express the diverse human passions of Shakespeare’s Sonnets, and through sound, create transformative, unifying experiences in its effort to connect the community.

In her concerts, Irina speaks directly, almost conversationally, with an audience. She excels in bringing melody lines that pass from one string to another while retaining a consistent tone color; richly resonant, cello like thumb strokes and a singing tone up in the highest postitions.
