Listen to the story here.

Cellist Sascha Groschang and violinist Laurel Morgan Parks have been good friends since they trained together as classical musicians at the University of Missouri-Kansas City’s Conservatory of Music and Dance. They perform around the region, and internationally, in symphony orchestras and chamber groups.  They’ve also delved into traditional folk, rock and jazz genres.

And now, the duo is releasing their first album of original compositions, self-titled The Wires.  They call it “an alternative exploration in string sound,” or more mundanely, “crossover classical.”

They discussed their work on a recent segment of KCUR-FM’s KC Currents.

KCUR-FM is a service of the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
