    Westport Center for the Arts Brown Bag Concert Series presents:
    The Wires: A Winter Solstice Concert

    Celebrate the Winter Solstice with a concert of original, introspective music for cello and violin honoring the shortest and darkest day of the year. The Wires’ music encompasses wide-ranging styles, all infused with the precision of classical form.

    The Wires are a modern exploration in string sound. Created in Kansas City, Missouri, Laurel Morgan Parks, violin, and Sascha Groschang, cello, have been composing dynamic and cinematic music as best friends since 2009. Their music is inspired by imagery found in the natural world, folk styles and modern string techniques. Following their debut album in 2012, their latest album “Wilder” (May 2019) is an imagined journey that includes depths of the oceanic world, the vast expanse of Celtic hills, the coldness of frozen tundra and a discovery of the cosmos. The duo performs at festivals, concert halls, and music venues in the Midwest and beyond.

    Presented Free, Donations Welcomed. Bring a Lunch, if you wish.
    Reception to follow with Coffee & Refreshments hosted by Westport Coffee House & Friends of WCA
