SONIC ESCAPE - Daredevils with Instruments
Friday, November 17 @ 7:00 p.m.
Tickets $12 + tax - Students 1/2 price
Fiddle-dancing for thousands in Tiananmen Square. A flute concert on skis in the mountains of Vermont. Couchsurfing parties in the Arctic Circle. A cross-country caper in a busted $500 minivan. Adventure abounds when art rules life, and sharing it with the world is what Sonic Escape is all about!
Shawn Wyckoff and Maria Millar founded Sonic Escape in 2009. Armed with flute & violin, their game plan – use hyper-instrumentals to fill hearts with indescribable joy – has landed them on hundreds of stages across 35 North American states, provinces and beyond! Maria and Shawn push themselves to the brink – singing, dancing, telling stories, and above all, playing their hearts out with a “wonderfully imaginative… anything goes sense of fun.” (The Washington Post, 2014)
They met at The Juilliard School. A love of blading the streets of New York (and a spring break in Ireland) forged a romance powered by fun. But playing the flute & violin together? No way! Too shrill, hard to tune. Temptation kicked in, though, and Shawn and Maria gave it a go. Tuning took 2 years; matching breath & bow took even longer. Composing music that amplifies the virtuosity, range and emotion of the flute & violin – that’s when the real fun began. They knew they’d arrived when an audience exclaimed, “Hurry, lock the doors! Don’t let them leave!!”
