Dallas String Quartet Electric kicks off MSU Lyceum Series Tuesday
International music sensation Dallas String Quartet Electric is bringing a fusion of classical music and modern pop to the Bettersworth Auditorium stage Tuesday [Sept. 11] when it opens Mississippi State’s annual Lyceum Series.
Doors to historic Lee Hall’s auditorium open approximately 30 minutes before the curtain rises for the 7 p.m. show, which is part of the university’s long-running performing arts program.
Performing on both traditional and electric strings, DSQ Electric has continued expanding its passionate following on Pandora, Spotify and Sirius XM radio since the 2016 release of the group’s fourth album “DSQ.”
Comprised of composer and violinist Ion Zanca, violinists Eleanor Dunbar and Melissa Priller, bassist Young Heo, guitarist Anthony Plant and percussionist/drummer Efren Guzman, DSQ takes its audience on a journey to the nexus of classical music and modern pop where artists like Beethoven and Bono collide.
