The Con Affetto Chamber Players chose their name, meaning, "with affection," because it so aptly describes the ensemble's mutual dedication to bringing love to every music-making opportunity. The Affettas first played together in January 2013, and instantly felt an unusual chamber music sympathy. The Affettas are winners of the Longy's Student Voices competition, and made their radio debut in November, 2013 on WQXR's McGraw Hill Financial Young Artist Showcase. The ensemble has played for musician notables such as Levon Chilingirian, Matt Haimovitz, Ian Swenson, and the Danish String Quartet. As proponents of music education, the Affettas have volunteered their time at El Sistema Somerville's orchestra program as well as Bridge Boston Charter School's El Sistema- inspired violin program. They were also ensemble-in-residence at the first-ever Winter Lyricafest in Lincoln, MA.
The Con Affetto philosophy of chamber music is that every piece of music bears vocality and conversation, however difficult to uncover or illuminate, and that musical conversations are what make the string quartet medium particularly captivating.
