STRING FEVER

The virtuoso musicians of this unique band have forged one of the most exciting musical concepts in years, “…crossing musical boundaries in all directions” (New York Post).

Founded by violinist Marin Alsop in 1981, String Fever has a distinctive blend of swing, pop, jazz and classical repertoire which has taken audiences and critics by storm. Hailed for its incredible versatility, String Fever has performed through the US in a wide variety of venues, from an eight month run at one of New York City’s top jazz clubs to a series of concerts for 8,500 Atlanta schoolchildren. Much in demand by many top solo artists from Billy Joel to the late Sir Yehudi Menuhin, String Fever is featured on two of Billy Joel’s albums, Nylon Curtain and Innocent Man. String Fever has collaborated with vocalist Mel Tormé, top dance great Honi Coles, and appeared as featured soloists with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra and the Eugene Symphony Orchestra. Collectively the members of String Fever hold degrees from The Juilliard, Eastman, and Manhattan Schools of Music, Yale University, Indiana University and Oberlin Conservatory. As individuals they are the most sought-after musicians on the New York scene, performing regularly with the New York Philharmonic, New York City Opera and New York City Ballet Orchestras, the American Symphony Orchestra, American Composers Orchestra, and have featured in numerous Broadway shows and commercial recordings.
