Quad City Arts’ Visiting Artist Series Presents The Moxie Strings

Enjoy some FREE live music in Muscatine this Friday night!

Quad City Arts’ Visiting Artist Series proudly presents The Moxie Strings at Wesley United Methodist Church (400 Iowa Ave. Muscatine) this Friday Jan 18 at 7 p.m. This show is FREE and OPEN to the public as part of WUMC’s Jackson Concert Series!

Hailed by The Grand Rapids Press as “top-notch, instrumental wizardry,” The Moxie Strings offer listeners the unique opportunity to experience some of the world’s best- known instruments through a young, progressive lens. Diana Ladio and Alison Lynn hold Bachelor of Music degrees in music performance and music education, which have given each the technical foundation to explore the limits of her instrument and helped the group build a reputation for musical excellence.

Alison performs on a newly-invented, electric cello, and Diana on a contemporary 5-string violin. Both use a variety of audio effects pedals. The Moxie Strings compose the majority of their pieces and arrange melodies from many countries, resulting in a genre-blurring blend of ear-catching, mainstream melodies and foot-stomping, rock-influenced rhythms. The band’s polished, high-energy show continues to redefine strings’ role in contemporary music, and offers audience members a diverse, fun, musical experience. The two often join forces with dynamic percussionists to create an even livelier sound for larger venues.
