Quartet Davis joined host Jennifer Hambrick live on Classical 101's Facebook page for a performance and interview.

Think you know what a string quartet sounds like? Quartet Davis might have you thinking again.

Founded at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, Quartet Davis blends a classical string quartet sound with influences from jazz, bluegrass, R&B and folk music to create a truly unique musical experience. This creative, young quartet joined me last week in the Classical 101 studios for an intimate interview and performance.

During the live video from Classical 101’s Facebook page, we heard some music that isn't the standard stuff from classical string quartets, and we talked about how these musicians are turning the traditional on its head.

It's not your grandmother’s string quartet — it's Quartet Davis. We hope you have just as much fun watching as we did during the performance.

Jennifer Hambrick unites her extensive backgrounds in the arts and media and her deep roots in Columbus to bring inspiring music to central Ohio as Classical 101’s midday host. Jennifer performed with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Civic Orchestra of Chicago before earning a Ph.D. in musicology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
