On Friday, Dec. 17, locals and visitors of the Vail Valley have the opportunity to see Dallas String Quartet’s Electric Christmas as part of the Holiday Series at the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek.

Recognized internationally for creating a fusion of classical and contemporary music on both traditional and electric strings, Dallas String Quartet is known for its eclectic renditions of anything from Guns N’ Roses “Sweet Child of Mine” to Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s “Senorita.”

“The best remake is that who takes the essence of the original and then brings something of its own that somewhat reinvents it and creates something unique,” Vents Magazine wrote about the group. “Dallas String Quartet exemplifies this.”

Dallas String Quartet has been compared to artists like violin virtuoso Lindsey Stirling, Vitamin String Quartet and 2Cellos. In addition to performing at Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton’s wedding, DSQ has performed for Presidents Obama and Bush, the College Football Playoffs, NBA and NFL organizations and more. They’ve sold out concert venues like the House of Blues and symphony halls and have played alongside Josh Groban, Chicago and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Founded in 2007 by legendary violist Ion Zanca, DSQ has released five albums, most recently “A Very Merry Christmas with Dallas String Quartet” in 2019, presenting 10 contemporary interpretations that continue to expand their passionate following on Pandora, Spotify and Sirius XM radio.
