Cascadia Strings's Debut Concert series: Sessions, featuring music by Bach, Brahms, The Beatles, Bon Iver, and more.
Victoria's newest professional and versatile string collective, Cascadia Strings (formerly Cascadia Quartet & ensembles) is launching their re-brand and first season through a series of three concerts in partnership with The Beach House Restaurant. To open this series on October 25th, a plethora of music from many eras of composition is explored. The common thread weaved throughout the program is simple: the shared initial of the letter "B" by the composers and artists showcased.
