The Kahilu Theatre will present the Galliard String Quartet’s livestream concert on Kahilu.TV, Saturday, March 27, 2021, at 4:00 p.m. Ticket info below.
Fueled by passion and sometimes coffee, the Galliard String Quartet’s romance for the music of Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, and Shostakovich and many others is unparalleled. Founded in 1982, the Galliard is known throughout the islands for its uncompromising commitment to performing classical music of the highest caliber. All four members of the present Galliard are members of the Hawai`i Symphony Orchestra and are also seasoned teachers and music educators in the community. This enchanting quartet will take the stage with Wu Hung and Helen Liou on violin, Colin Belisle on viola, and Sung Chan Chang on cello.
Wu Hung (violin) is a native of Taiwan who joined the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra in 1993. He earned his Artist Diploma in violin performance from the Hartt School of Music in Connecticut and received his Master of Music degree with honors from the New England Conservatory of Music.
Dr. Liu (violin) performs with the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra and with Ebb and Flow Arts chamber music series, based on Maui. She holds degrees in violin performance from Stony Brook University (D.M.A.), New England Conservatory (M.M. and G.D. with Concentration in Music-in-Education), and University of Maryland – College Park (B.M.). She is currently on the violin and chamber music faculty at Punahou School, Iolani School, Bringham Young University-Hawaii, and serves as a string clinician at the Hawaii Youth Symphony’s Pacific Music Institute.
Colin Belisle (viola) is a member of the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra. In addition to the Hawaii Symphony, he has also performed regularly with the Rhode Island Philharmonic, New World Symphony in Miami, and Portland Symphony. He received a Master of Music degree and Graduate Diploma from the New England Conservatory, and a Bachelor of Music degree from Lawrence University Conservatory of Music.
Sung Chan Chang (cello) is the Associate Principal cello of the Hawaii Symphony and is an active performer in many local ensembles of Oahu. He began playing at age 7 in his hometown of Seoul, South Korea. He made his debut with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra in 2000, attended the Seoul Ye-Won Art School, the Korean National University of Arts for his bachelor’s degree in 2008, and the Juilliard School for his Master of Music degree in 2010. In 2012, he received the Artist Diploma from Yale University. Sung Chan is currently pursuing his Doctor of Musical Arts degree at Northwestern University under the guidance of Hans Jørgen Jensen.
The Galliard is one of three professional ensembles promoted by Chamber Music Hawaii, an independent Hawai`i nonprofit whose mission is to enrich Hawaii’s cultural life and promote appreciation and understanding of chamber music, through concerts and educational outreach programs in various communities throughout the state. Though the Galliard performs predominantly on Oahu, the group also tours to Hawaii, Maui, Kauai, Molokai, and Lanai islands for concerts and educational outreach in public libraries, schools, and even private homes.
