    For this performance, Laurel Morgan (violin) and Sascha Groschang (cello) will collaborate with visual artist Benjamin Parks to create a time lapse projection that reacts and responds to what the musicians play live. The visual result will be a living, flowing piece, unique to the time and place of the live performance.

The Wires

The Wires are an alternative exploration in string sound. Hailing from Kansas City, Missouri, The Wires compose and perform original music for violin and cello. Inspired by a myriad of genres and eclectic sounds, The Wires are not your typical strings group. The project encompasses a blend of wide-ranging styles, from tango to gypsy, jazz to rock and infused with the precision of classical form. Created, composed and performed by Laurel Morgan (violin) and Sascha Groschang (cello). The Wires released their debut album in 2013, and are creators and executive directors of Wired In – Creative Strings Workshop – a summer program for string players interested in learning new styles and techniques.
