The Wires: Composing for and Making Music as a String Duo

Virtual talk and performance


The Wires, Laurel Morgan Parks, violin, and Sascha Groschang, cello, compose and perform all original music in a variety of styles, from Celtic to early American and tango to jazz, all integrated with the form of classical music. They will discuss their unique approach to writing music and share some stories about the tunes they’ll be playing that evening, with some examples of their extended techniques.

Join The Wires for a discussion on Zoom. Following the discussion, Laurel and Sascha will give a performance from the Lied Center stage.
