Event Description

Unlike your typical show, the String Fling Concert is an evening where the music is tied together by strings. Taking their combined years of classical, jazz, folk and other musical training to the test, Four on the Floor is presenting indie music in a new sonic dimension. And there's plenty to look forward to at this year's show! Each artist will perform 3 songs with Four on the Floor and the quartet also will be performing in between each set with original pieces as well as covers.

The first String Fling Concert took place on December 13, 2012 at The Rio and was a huge success with performances from: Shaun Verrault (Wide Mouth Mason), Dominique Fricot, Data Romance, The Gay Nineties and Ali Milner.
