As the name suggests, this Vancouver group will explore infinite musical possibilities, playing everything from beatbox to Bach, borrowing from jazz and hip-hop in a mix of music that is pure contemporary classic. This is chamber music like you’ve never heard before.

Infinitus is a critically acclaimed beatboxing string trio known for their unique sound and upbeat performance style. With a repertoire featuring classical standards and original jazz/hip-hop arrangements and compositions, Infinitus is quickly becoming one of North America’s premiere chamber groups.

Infinitus was formed in 2008 by violist Anthony Cheung, cellist Alex Cheung, and violinist John “Adidam” Littlejohn. Collectively, the members hold degrees from the University of Michigan and the Peabody Conservatory and have won awards at the local, national, and international level. They have performed extensively throughout North America presenting community performances, soloing with orchestras, and conducting masterclasses, workshops, and seminars. Infinitus is dedicated to quality outreach. To date they have performed over 700 outreach performances in schools, nursing homes, juvenile detention centres, and hospitals.

Infinitus has been featured on CBC, National Public Radio, OMNI Television, and in numerous publications. In 2011 they released their self-titled debut album featuring refreshingly original compositions and arrangements. They are currently based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and perform regularly as part of the Vancouver Chamber Players Concert Series. The group is currently on the faculty of the Thrive City String Academy and Boot Camp, the Saint James Music Academy, and the Vancouver Academy of Music.
