ABOUT MUSIC WITH
Carol Ann and Chase met in the beautiful mountainsides of Colorado while studying cello and piano performance at the University of Northern Colorado. While traveling, they were charmed by the vineyards of northern California and found a new home in Lodi after graduating.
Strings Attached was naturally formed through their love of music and composition. This extraordinary piano and cello duet play classical, pop, and jazz re-imagined in both original compositions and classics. Chase and Carol Ann interact with the audience through charming performance and educational story-telling. Their music often features a modern sound with the use of sampled beats and looped electric cello.
