Success! Outliers is Funded.

Dear Friends,

Thanks to you, our new album OUTLIERS is FUNDED!

In celebration of our successful Kickstarter campaign and another great year of Sybarite5 concerts and projects, we’re holding our second annual Backers’ Ball TOMORROW in NYC. There will be music, food, drinks, and a silent auction where you could score tickets to the Tonight Show, in a gorgeous home in TriBeCa. What’s not to like? We hope some of you will join us! And for those who donated $50 or more to our Kickstarter, your ticket is FREE, but seating is limited so email right away to reserve your spot.

We are humbled by the outpouring of support we received: 266 backers and a total of $20,930 raised. It is so lovely to know that so many of you believe in what we are doing and in the future of music. We absolutely would not be able to make this album without your help, and can’t wait for you to hear it!

We hope to see you tomorrow, or soon! And stay tuned for updates as we head into the studio at the end of this month!

Thank you once again, from all of us in Sybarite-land.

Angela, Laura, Louis, Sami, & Sarah

BIG NEWS: New Album Launch

Dear Friends,

When we began as a string quintet, nearly a decade ago, there was very little music written for our instrumentation. So we set out to create it. Now, we have brought over 50 pieces into the world with even more being written as we speak! It is with great excitement and pride that we announce that we will record our third album, OUTLIERS, this June, featuring 11 of these wonderful works!

We are thrilled to be recording in our home of New York City at the legendary Systems2 studio, under the supervision of Grammy-winning producer and engineer Paul Ziman. The ten acclaimed young composers on the album have written pieces just for us, and we can’t wait to get the music to YOU!

We are asking for your help, because making a top-quality recording comes with costs. No matter where you are in the world, and no matter how much you can give, you can be a part of this important project, and be the first to hear this incredible new music once it coms out! We have 19 days to raise nearly $20k, and we know that with your help we can do it. Please visit our Kickstarter page to learn more.

The members of Sybarite5, as well as composers Andy AkihoKenji BunchMohammed FairouzDan ViscontiEric ByersLev ZhurbinMichi WianckoJessica MeyerShawn Conley and Daniel Bernard Roumain would be so grateful for your support.

Thank you, as always, and we can’t wait for you to hear this!

P.S. For those of you in NYC, please join us for our annual NYC Backers Ball on June 21, and enjoy live music, refreshments and more at a stunning Manhattan home!
