Siskiyou Music Project in collaboration with Britt Education presents Quattrosound in performance at the RCC Rogue Performance Hall on Friday, October 27 at 7 p.m.
Quattrosound is an innovative acoustic-based ensemble that skillfully blurs the lines of music genre boundaries. The four professionally trained members are equally astute at playing a classical piece by Bach as they are at rocking out to Led Zeppelin, or picking up Spain by Chick Corea.
Giovanna Moraga Clayton, Leah Zeger, Kay-Ta Matsuno, and Jorge Villaneuva play violin, cello, guitar, and an eclectic selection of percussion instruments from around the world, and sing playful vocal arrangements, creating a sound that soothes the most critical music palette.
Hailing from Japan, Mexico, Guatemala, and the U.S., their music selections are as broad as the group’s ethnicities. Individually, these four accomplished musicians, now based in Los Angeles, have played with Bocelli, Barbra Streisand, Yo-Yo Ma, Annie Lennox, Michael Jackson, Lalah Hathaway, Ricky Martin and Gloria Estefan. Together, they create a unique musical experience with impressive technicality that brings audiences to their feet at every performance.
Quattrosound raises the bar of originality with fresh compositions and arrangements that “pay homage to the classics” and forge a new contemporary sound. To experience Quattrosound is to take an exciting journey through music.
