* "Cello rock": the genre this quartet is pioneering
* How they honed their unique sound: by studying classical music by day and going to rock clubs by night
* Where you've heard them: on YouTube, Dateline NBC, and in an Emmy-winning segment of America’s Investigative Reports on PBS
* What you might hear at the show: Bach arrangements truly rearranged, some Tool or Radiohead, or perhaps the works of the 18th-century chamber orchestra Metallica
* Latest genre-bursting album that you wish your high school band teacher had heard: TEN
Before their show, guests of the Ames Center peer out the lobby’s two-story glass walls to the skyline of Minneapolis. Shaking off the inspiring sights of civilization, they enter into a world of entertainment and make believe. Inside the 1,014-seat auditorium, the proscenium stage spotlights actors and musicians, and striking metal cutouts line the walls. When lit from behind, these cutouts create a tangle of shadows and light reminiscent of a child’s dream or the opus of an insane shadow puppeteer. The center also hosts a 150-seat black box theater, as well as an expansive art gallery and rehearsal area.
