Formosa Quartet


The Formosa Quartet will return to UC San Diego for a performance that will include the world premiere of a new work by Wei-Chieh Lin inspired by Taiwanese folk songs. The quartet’s program will feature:

  • world premiere of a set of Taiwanese folk songs by Wei-Chieh Lin
  • Four Grappelli Jazz Tunes arranged by quartet violinist Jasmine Lin
  • String Quartet No. 4 by Bela Bartok

The members of the Formosa Quartet – Jasmine Lin, Wayne Lee, Che-Yen Chen, and Deborah Pae – have established themselves as leading solo, chamber, and orchestral musicians. With degrees from the Juilliard School, Curtis Institute of Music, and New England Conservatory, they have performed in major venues throughout the United States, Asia, and Europe, and have been top prizewinners in prestigious competitions such as the Paganini, Primrose, Fischoff, Naumburg, and Tertis competitions. As chamber musicians, they have appeared regularly at the Marlboro, Kingston, Santa Fe, Ottawa, Ravinia, Crans-Montana, and Schiermonnikoog festivals, as well as at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, La Jolla Summerfest, the Seattle Chamber Music Society, and Open Chamber Music at Prussia Cove. They have held principal positions in the San Diego and Cincinnati Symphonies, and have taught at the University of Southern California, California State University Fullerton, Roosevelt University, Taos School of Music, Stanford University, McGill University, and the Juilliard School. In 2014 the Quartet became the faculty quartet-in-residence at the National Youth Orchestra of Canada.
