Dallas String Quartet Performing Virtual Concert During OKM’s 36th Festival
BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (Aug. 6, 2020) – Acclaimed by Good Morning Texas as “one of the most
unique string ensembles you’ll ever see,” Dallas String Quartet is a classical crossover ensemble that will be
performing a virtual performance online for OKM Music’s 36th annual festival.
Formed in Dallas in 2010, Dallas String Quartet performs a unique mix of contemporary classical music,
and pop covers on electric string instruments. Performing everything from Bach, Bon Jovi, John Williams, and
even Queen, DSQ has become an international sensation.
DSQ features the talents of composer and violist Ion Zanca, violinists Melissa Primmer and Eleanor
Dunbar, Young Heo on bass, guitarist Anthony Plant, and percussionist Efren Guzman Jr. The ensemble
performs both intimately as a quartet or with a full accompaniment of drums, guitar, and piano.
With the 2019 release of their fifth album “A Very Merry Christmas with Dallas String Quartet” they
have presented ten contemporary interpretations that continue to expand their passionate following on Pandora,
Spotify, and Sirius XM radio.
“The unique energy that Dallas String Quartet brings to the musical stage is very exciting to watch,”
says Ryan Martin, OKM’s Marketing Director.
In addition to performing internationally, DSQ has played in the United States for former Presidents
Obama and Bush, the College Football Playoff, NBA, and NFL organizations. DSQ has sold out venues all
around the country, like the House of Blues, and symphony halls alike. They have performed alongside Josh
Groban, Chicago, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, to name a few.
To catch their stunning online live-stream performance, visit OKM’s Facebook page (OK MOZART) on
Sunday, September 6 at 2:00 p.m. This performance is free for viewers to watch online. A link for donations to
OKM will be available during the performance and encouraged. After the live-stream concert, the performance
will automatically be saved to OKM’s Facebook page for guests to view later.
“Although, they won’t be performing in-person as originally planned, we are still so excited for our
patrons and guests to experience DSQ online,” says Martin.
