Upcoming Performances by The 6821 Quintet

The 6821 Quintet returns to the National Cherry Blossom Festival for the second year.  A special group of five talented performers have come together just for the National Cherry Blossom Festival to share their exquisite music with the city of DC, with the support of the Ryuji Ueno Foundation. The 6821 Quintet is cleverly named after the distance in miles from Tokyo to Washington, and their individual skills synchronized together provides the ultimate musical experience. The 6821 Quintet, this year, is led by violinist Mayu Kishima, First Prize winner of the First Shanghai Isaac Stern International Violin Competition in 2016.
