Get ready to rev up your holiday season as you listen to the amazing, immersive and absolutely mesmerizing Dallas String Quartet, live at the historic Cactus Theater! Also referred to as DSQ, they are a #2 Billboard charting American Classical Crossover ensemble founded in 2007 by composer and violist Ion Zanca.
A fusion of contemporary classical and pop music, DSQ is referred to as “Bach meets Bon Jovi” and is compared to artists like Lindsey Stirling, Vitamin String Quartet, Brooklyn Duo and 2Cellos. DSQ stretches artistic boundaries just far enough where the listener doesn’t lose track of the original song.
They use both traditional and electric strings performing as a quartet with the full accompaniment of drums and guitar and are known for their eclectic renditions of everything from Guns N’ Roses “Sweet Child O’ Mine” to Shawn Mendes to Camila Cabello’s “Señorita” to their collaboration, “You Are The Reason,” with The Piano Guys.
DSQ has performed for Presidents Obama and Bush, the College Football Playoffs, NBA, NFL organizations and their cover of Katy Perry’s “Firework” was featured on the most recent season of American Idol.
In October of 2021, their album “Love Always” debuted at #2 on the Billboard Chart (in both Classical Crossover Albums and Classical Albums). DSQ is also featured on the 2023 GRAMMY-nominated album, “The Passenger” by Cheryl B. Engelhardt. The core group is composed of violist Ion Zanca, violinists Valory Hight and Melissa Priller, and bassist Young Heo.
