Infinite talent from Infinitus

String trio makes classical music cool

Infinitus was formed in 2002 by twins Alex and Anthony Cheung.Violinist John Littlejohn came on board in 2008.

Classical music is not boring, especially when it’s brought to you by the three young, cool, and award-winning artists of Infinitus.

Made up of Alex Cheung (cello), Anthony Cheung (viola) and John H. Littlejohn (violin), the string trio is known for their unique sound and upbeat performances.

The band members have varied tastes in music, but one thing they have in common is that they are inspired by anyone doing something new and fresh in music.

Infinitus strives to make classical music hip and relevant. With programs that feature polished classical works and original jazz, Latin and hip-hop arrangements and compositions, audiences can expect a fun and interactive concert experience.

When deciding on the name of the group, Anthony sat down with a Latin dictionary. After a three-hour search, he settled on the name “Infinitus” – the Latin root for the word “Infinity.”  This name now personifies the group, as the members strive to remove all musical and technical barriers often associated with stringed instruments.

The members hold degrees from the University of Michigan and the Peabody Conservatory and have won numerous awards at the local, national, and international level.

Infinitus is dedicated to quality outreach and often performs for schools, nursing homes, hospitals, First Nation reserves, and prisons. In the 2007-08 season, they performed more than 130 outreach concerts throughout British Columbia.

Classical lovers love Infinitus for their superb musicianship.  And folks who’ve not enjoyed classical music as much before just love this groups spirit and performance, says Lindy Sisson, executive director at The ACT in Maple Ridge.

Infinitus plays the ACT on Sunday, Oct. 30 at 7 p.m.
