FORT WAYNE—The music of the undead is scheduled to come alive in a zombie-themed concert featuring dark classical music as well as songs from The Walking Dead, 28 Days Later, Metallica and more when String Shift—a new eclectic chamber ensemble—performs their debut concert at 8 p.m., Oct. 25 at c2g Music Hall, 323 W. Baker St.
String Shift is made up of professional string players from the Fort Wayne Philharmonic and beyond. Critics say they are bringing to Fort Wayne a new style of performance, which merges the worlds of pop and classical music through themed concerts.
The concert work, known as Symphony Z, represents a unique idea in chamber music.
“Symphony Z is an experience that lets people live the intensity, absurdity, terror, intrigue, and morbid hilarity of the zombie-horror genre through a musical concert,” said Ed Stevens, lead cellist of String Shift.
In addition to Stevens on cello, the group includes: Yana Bourkova-Morunov, Colleen Tan, Tim Tan and Caleb Mossburg on violin; Lori Morgan on cello; Derek Reeves on lead viola with Rachel Mossburg also on viola, and Kevin Piekarski on lead bass.
Tickets are on sale now through brownpapertickets.com for $20 or can be purchased at the door for $25. Gold Circle seating is also available for $30.
