The Yale Club of Chicago is excited to co-host a ONE-OF-A-KIND musical performance that will dazzle and delight music lovers of all ages. If you have never heard a classical cello ensemble perform memorable classic rock and pop tunes (and who has?), you have to bring the entire family to hear this!!!

Breaking out of the classical cello repertoire and venturing into the realm of classic rock and pop, Low Strung – a cello ensemble based in New Haven, performs concerts that are characterized by sweeping, innovative arrangements of tunes by Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Coldplay, the Who, the Beatles, the Eagles, AC/DC and many more. Using the incredible versatility of the cello to extraordinary effect, these cellists bring a unique and exciting sound to rock classics, heavy metal favorites, and pop tunes. Founded in 2005 by students at Yale University, the cello ensemble is touring the Windy City this spring in their first Midwestern tour.  The group conducts annual tours around the country, released its first CD in May of 2007, and the self-titled album can be found on iTunes, CD Baby, and at their concerts. Visit www.lowstrungcellos.org for more information and CD audio clips from these amazing musicians.
