The Dallas String Quartet Holiday Concert

Don’t miss your only chance to hear The Dallas String Quartet perform in East Texas! The quartet is known for their style of music that mixes traditional music with electric strings. Starring Ion Zanca, producer, violinist, and founder of the quartet, violinists Melissa Priller and Anastasia Mazurok, and bass player Young Heo alongside guitarist Joel White and percussionist Efren Guzman Jr.

An international music sensation, Dallas String Quartet is known for interpretations of an eclectic range of styles, creating tasteful renditions of both modern and pop music classics in addition to updated takes on more traditional forms of music. With the 2019 release of their fifth album “A Very Merry Christmas with Dallas String Quartet” they presented 10 contemporary interpretations of classic holiday music.

“The Dallas String Quartet is one of the most unique and visionary artists of our time.”

—Broadway World

DSQ was founded by Ion Zanca after moving to the U.S. from Romania in 2002. Zanca’s mission when he formed DSQ Electric was “to disturb and innovate an industry and a style of music that has been done the same way for centuries.” Using both traditional and electric strings, the Dallas String Quartet plays everything from Bach to Bon Jovi in inventive arrangements that show how music from such seemingly different genres use the same notes to move the listener. Blurring the lines between classical, rock and pop music, the Dallas String Quartet utilizes its bevy of unique arrangements to provide a truly original program that keeps its audience in a constant state of awe.

“Our mission at MCH is to present cultural arts programs that engage all audiences. Many people, even those who enjoy a wide range of popular music styles, don’t think they like classical music. Dallas String Quartet is a great example of how the emotional power of music and dynamic performance are often very similar – whether it’s Bach or Bon Jovi.”, said Glenn Barnhart, Manager of Memorial City Hall.
