The Moxie Strings claimed the #1 spot on the Classical Crossover Billboard chart in July 2022 for their exciting new album “Live & Plugged In.”
After 16 years, The Moxie Strings will begin a tour through 2023 culminating in a much slower pace as a duo going forward. Individually they will explore artistic endeavors and will reunite for the occasional performance and or educational outreach program.
Hailed by The Grand Rapids Press as “top-notch, instrumental wizardry,” The Moxie Strings offerlisteners the unique opportunity to experience some of the world’s best- known instruments through a young, progressive lens. Diana Ladio and Alison Lynn hold Bachelor of Music degrees in music performance and music education, which have given each the technical foundation to explore the limits of her instrument and helped the group build a reputation for musical excellence.
Alison performs on a newly-invented, electric cello, and Dianaon a contemporary 5-string violin. Both use a variety of audio effects pedals. The Moxie Strings compose the majority of their pieces and the band’s polished, high-energy show continues to redefine strings’ role in contemporary music.
