VC Artist Rolston String Quartet Announces Two New Members

Violinist Jason Issokson and cellist Yoshi Masuda appointed as the newest members of VC Artist Rolston String Quartet

Today, VC Artist Rolston String Quartet announced the appointment of violinist Jason Issokson and cellist Yoshi Masuda to the ensemble.

The two new members will replace violinist Emily Kruspe and cellist Jonathan Lo.

A graduate of the Manhattan School of Music and the University of Southern California's Thornton School of Music, where he studied with Midori, Jason formerly served as a member of the Argus String Quartet.

Yoshi is a graduate of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Royal Northern College of Music and the University of Southern California's Thornton School of Music, where he studied with Georg Pedersen, Hannah Roberts, Thomas Demenga, David Geringas and Ralph Kirshbaum.

"After many months of planning, we are thrilled to welcome violinist Jason Issokson and cellist Yoshi Masuda to the RSQ family! They are both incredibly accomplished musicians, and they are already bringing a fantastic new energy, inspiration and passion to the group," violist Hez Leung has today told The Violin Channel.

"We would like to thank Jonathan and Emily for our incredible journey together through these years, and wish them the very best as they embark on new musical journeys. They have put an indelible stamp on this ensemble and have contributed so much to this Quartet both artistically and personally - they will be dearly missed," he has said.
