Established in 2016, the Rose Gellert String Quartet is ensemble in residence at LCMS, and has given performances as part of LCMS’ concert series as well as throughout the Fraser Valley. Founding members Will Chen and Llowyn Ball (violin), Peter Ing (viola), and Ben Goheen (cello) are all active musicians, teachers, and music coaches throughout Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. Through their LCMS residency, the Quartet has a mandate to create and foster community, as well as a deeper appreciation of music – a mandate they are proud to fulfill through their many outreach concerts at local schools and seniors’ facilities.
Violinist Will Chen’s performances have taken him all over Canada, Europe and the United Kingdom as a soloist and chamber musician with the rising group Mainzer Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra. He holds a Bachelors of Music from the University of Victoria, and a Masters degree from Hochschule fur Musik Mainz, Germany. He has studied with teachers such as Patricia Shih, Ann Elliott-Goldschmid, Gwen Thompson, Roger Chase and Anne Shih.
Llowyn Ball is a dedicated and experienced chamber and orchestral musician. Llowyn completed his Master’s degree in violin performance at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music after studying at the UBC School of Music. He regularly performs with the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra, Vancouver Island Symphony Orchestra, the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra, & Vancouver New Music. When not with four strings under his fingers, Llowyn is most likely to be found with grease under his fingernails while tinkering on an old British motorcycle, or piloting a passenger ferry.
A native of Toronto, Peter Ing currently resides in Vancouver, B.C. He is an active freelance musician and violin/viola pedagogue. He holds a Masters Degree from the University of British Columbia and has since performed in music festivals across North America and Europe, including the Kent Blossom Music Festival, Colorado String Quartet Festival, and the Casalmaggiore International Music Festival in Italy. Peter freelances with various orchestras in the Lower Mainland and Thompson-Okanagan Region of B.C. such as Kamloops Symphony Orchestra, Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra, and Vancouver Island Symphony Orchestra.
Ben Goheen holds a masters degree in cello performance from UBC, where he studied with Eric Wilson. While attending university, he held the principal cello position for the symphony’s main concerts. He has enjoyed performing in several other symphonies in the Lower Mainland, including the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Vancouver Island Symphony Orchestra, Prince George Symphony, BC Chamber Orchestra, Kamloops Symphony, Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra and Canada West Chamber Orchestra. He also loves performing with a wide variety of small chamber ensembles, and as a solo performer he enjoys in-studio and concert sessions. In addition to performing, Ben is the conductor of the Surrey Symphony Society’s Intermediate Strings.
