Nantucket Arts Council Downtown Concert Series Presents: Holes in the Floor, a Cello Quartet

Boston-based cello quartet Holes in the Floor is comprised of cellists Jonathan Butler,

Eunghee Cho, Yejin Hong, and Joy Yanai who have each built global reputations

winning major prizes in numerous international string competitions. A relatively new

addition to the international musical community, the ensemble strives to redefine the

popularity and expressive potential of classical music through exciting and engaging

performances and presentations of beloved classics as well as new commissions and


Members of Holes in the Floor have performed at festivals and with ensembles around

the globe, including with the Verbier Festival Orchestra (Switzerland), Pacific Music

Festival Orchestra (Japan), the Piatigorsky International Cello Festival (U.S.A.), Cello

Biënnale Amsterdam (Netherlands), the Banff Music Festival (Canada) and with the

Sung Nam Symphony Orchestra (South Korea). Since forming at the New England

Conservatory of Music in 2017, Holes in the Floor has been invited to perform on such

concert series as the Old First Concerts series in San Francisco, Third Sunday Concert

Series in Berkeley, Nancy Lee Clark concert series at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts,

MIT’s Music at Whitehead series, New England Conservatory’s Tuesday Night New

Music series, Music on Norway Pond, and as ensemble-in-residence with the Mellon

Music Festival.

Through New England Conservatory’s Entrepreneurial Musicianship Grant, the quartet

commissioned two new works for cello quartet and performed two more world premieres

on their recent tour of California. Advocates of an evolving musical tradition, Holes in

the Floor regularly commissions young composers to write new cello quartets which are

programmed alongside the ensemble’s own arrangements and transcriptions of their

favorite repertoire.
