The leader of the quartet is accomplished American double bassist Caitlyn Kamminga, and she will be accompanied by Belorussian-born American conductor, saxophonist, and clarinettist Yevgeny Dokshansky, percussionist Josh Watkins, and pianist Hayward Mickens. These gifted musicians will perform original works which will highlight the smooth Caribbean influences on American classical music.
