DEFIANCE, Ohio – Cordis Quartet will open the 2013-14 season of the Schomburg Series with a performance on Tuesday, Oct. 1, at 7 p.m. The event will be held in Schomburg Auditorium on the campus of Defiance College.
Cordis Quartet has been redefining contemporary chamber music by fusing an original combination of custom-made and traditional ethnic instruments to create their signature sound. Although the ensemble is built upon electric/acoustic cello (Jeremy Harman), electric cimbalom (Richard Grimes), keyboards (Brian O'Neill), and percussion (Andrew Beall) - one-of-a-kind creations such as the electric mbira, melodica, and the world's longest playing cylinder-driven music box also have a way of weaving their way into any given performance.
Individual performance tickets are $10 and will be available at the door. The performances are free for faculty, staff and current DC students.
