Urban Nocturnes

Urban Nocturnes is a modular chamber music ensemble made up of six outstanding Phoenix-based professional musicians. Founded by two members of The Phoenix Symphony, violinist Karen Sinclair and violist Christopher McKay, the group has recently welcomed four new members: cellist Melita Hunsinger, flutist Viviana Cumplido Wilson, clarinetist Erin Finkelstein, and pianist Olga Gorelik. Urban Nocturnes aims to present classical music in a manner that appeals to seasoned music-lovers and newcomers alike by devising programs that are aesthetically balanced, thought-provoking, and emotionally stirring. Their programming encompasses a wide variety of combinations of their instruments and reflects the members’ commitment to delivering the highest level of performance and to demonstrating music’s universal power to engage and enliven the mind and soul.
