Contemporary classical meets electric guitar. 


SOLI Chamber Ensemble continues its season with Grammy award-winning electric guitarist D. J. Sparr. This innovative evening fuses the sounds of diverse music spheres - phasing, loops, and funk meet rock, flavors of jazz, and contemporary classical harmonies to bring electrifying energy to the ear.


SOLI’s digital event includes the world premieres of three works: Hammer and Nail by Anthony Joseph Lanman, A Singing Planet by Olivia Kieffer, and the SOLI commissioned work A Bell Outside a Bell Inside a Bell by D. J. Sparr.


Electrified Air will premiere on Wednesday March 17 at 7:00 pm CDT on SOLI’s YouTube Channel.
