Four friends got together and started a band? That’s so Nashville. The friends are a violinist, cellist, lute player, and countertenor? Yep. Still very Nashville.
When Classically Speaking was invited to produce a live episode recording at national podcasting conference PodX, we wanted to showcase an ensemble that’s worked hand in hand with 91Classical since the beginning. Cheap Trills made their debut on Live in Studio C, and even let our audience “name the band” in the fall of 2018.
In this episode you’ll hear three full pieces of music performed live by the ensemble, including an aria by J.S. Bach, a spiritual, and a tune by Stevie Wonder. All arranged in collaboration among the members of the group. This kind of team work is a great introduction to Nashville’s classical music scene.
