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. Additionally, the group works to inspire young string players by conducting workshops, performing with youth symphonies, and private teaching. Recently, Infinitus has worked with the Vancouver Youth Symphony, Richmond-Delta Youth Symphony, Magee Secondary School Orchestra (Vancouver), North Vancouver Strings Program, and the Saint James Music Academy Orchestras.

Infinitus has been featured on CBC, National Public Radio, OMNI Television, and in numerous publications. They have released two albums to date: “Infinitus” and “Christmas Fantasia” and have performed at some of the world’s best venues, including repeat residencies with the Lincoln Center in New York City. 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 Boot Camp, the Saint James Music Academy, and the Vancouver Academy of Music.
