PERFORMERS

St George Quintet

Two violins (Liesbeth Baelus and Kaja Nowak), viola (Diede Verpoest), cello (Wouter Vercruysse) and double bass (Bram Decroix) is an unconventional setting and thus a very versatile repertoire.

The St George Quintet has toured extensively throughout Flanders and performed in festivals and venues such as Midis/Minimes (Brussels), Iedereen Klassiek (Concertgebouw Bruges), Klarafestival and AMUZ (Antwerp). Abroad the St. George Quintet performed during the Grachtenfestival in Amsterdam, the Lake District Summer Music Festival (UK), the Festival of Zeeuwsch-Vlaanderen (NL) and gave a commemorative concert in London organized by the General Representation of the Government of Flanders in the UK.

The St. George Quintet is a laureate of Supernova 2016, a competition for young chamber music ensembles organized in cooperation with the Belgian classical music radio station Klara.  In 2016 Pavane Records released their debut album, British Legends. In 2019 the St. George Quintet has released a second album, Bohemia Express produced by Rachel Smith (Ophelia Productions).
