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. Since forming in 2002 to perform and promote Taiwanese music, the Formosa Quartet won the First Prize and the Amadeus Prize at the London International String Quartet Competition in 2006. To date, they have given critically acclaimed performances at the Ravinia Festival, Caramoor Festival, Library of Congress, Da Camera Society of Los Angeles, Chicago Cultural Center, Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center, Rice University, San Francisco State University and Wigmore Hall in London. Currently, the Formosa Quartet is working with Lei Liang, professor of music at UC San Diego, while serving as Art of Élan's ensemble-in-residence.
 
The quartet will perform Ludwig van Beethoven's String Quartet Opus 59, No. 1, Shih-Hui Chen's Returning Souls and Lei Lang's latest work Song Recollections.
