The Moxie Strings @ Crooked Tree Arts Center
Crooked Tree Arts Center and Blissfest present an evening of live music performed by The Moxie Strings. "Hailed by the Grand Rapids Press for “top-notch instrumental wizardry,” The Moxie Strings offer listeners the unique opportunity to experience some of the world’s best-known instruments through a young, progressive lens. Diana Ladio and Alison Lynn hold Bachelor of Music degrees in music performance, which have given them a technical foundation for exploration. The Moxie Strings compose the majority of their pieces and arrange melodies from many traditions, resulting in a genre-blurring blend of ear-catching melodies and foot-stomping, rock-influenced rhythms. Alison performs on an electric cello, and Diana on a contemporary five-string violin, both through a variety of audio effects pedals. Their polished, high-energy show and unique sound have quickly made The Moxie Strings one of the country’s leading instrumental acts, and they even topped Billboard’s Classical Crossover chart last year. The Moxie Strings are going on hiatus, so don’t miss this chance to see them one last time." Find out more here.
