The Turlock Concert Association is hoping a case of Stringfever will be hitting the community Friday.
TCA is bringing the four-piece band Stringfever to the Turlock Community Theatre stage at 7:30 p.m. Friday for a show featuring the group’s unique performance on stringed instruments.
Stringfever is comprised of brothers Giles, Ralph, and Neal Broadbent and their cousin, Graham Broadbent. The four men play five and six-stringed electric violins, viola and cello. The show has a wide range of unique pieces including an acclaimed version of Ravel’s “Bolero” in which all four will be playing on one cello simultaneously. Stringfever then challenges the audience in “Name That Tune” as they race through 20 of the best-loved film themes in one breathless arrangement. Their helter-skelter 007 James Bond medley is a crowd pleaser. The show ends with Stringfever’s signature finale, “The History of Music... in Five Minutes.”
Single tickets for this event are $25 for general admission, $15 for students through high school. Entrance is available as a free bonus for subscribers to the 2016-2017 season.
