Rose Gellert String Quartet: Profile + Individual Bios

Rose Gellert String Quartet is the ensemble in residence at LCMS, performing regularly for the school’s concert series, heading up and coaching for several chamber music programs, and providing instruction for music students. Outside LCMS, the quartet performs for various concert series throughout the Fraser Valley. Will Chen and Llowyn Ball (violin), Peter Ing (viola), and Ben Goheen (cello) are all active musicians, teachers, and music coaches who, through their LCMS residency, enjoy fulfilling their mandate to create and foster community and a deeper appreciation of music, providing outreach concerts at local schools and bringing live music to seniors’ homes where residents might otherwise go without the joy of live music.

Will Chen, violin
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, violin
Llowyn Ball is a dedicated and experienced chamber and orchestral musician. Llowyn completed his Masters 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.

Peter Ing, viola
Canadian-born Chinese violist, Peter Ing, is a seasonal musician with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Peter began his musical training directly on the viola and was immersed into the rich alto sound right from the start. He obtained his bachelor’s degree from the University of Western Ontario, studying with Ralph Aldridge. Following that, he went on to study with David Harding at the University of British Columbia, completing a master’s degree. Peter also spent time as a fellow at the Kent Blossom Music Festival studying chamber music and orchestral repertoire with various Cleveland Orchestra musicians. Aside from being an active orchestral musician, he is also the violist and founding member of the Rose Gellert String Quartet, the ensemble-in-residence at the Langley Community Music School. His string quartet acts as a musical ambassador in the Langley area bringing music to schools and senior’s homes where their residence may not have the mobility to attend live performances. When not on stage, Peter can be found with is Partner roaming around garden centres finding new plants to grow on their home balcony.

Ben Goheen, cello
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.
