Electric 5

About

Electric 5 is an all-female electric string quintet that performs captivating classical crossover renditions of some of the greatest rock and pop hits of all time. Through their masterful musicianship and innovative arrangements, Electric 5 is able to recreate the beauty and magic of every song they cover without the use of backup tracks, a rarity in this ever-growing genre. Unlike a traditional string quartet, Electric 5 uses 2 cellos and 3 violins for added depth and richness of sound. Their high-energy act includes singing and virtuosic violin solos from the group’s founder Adia – winner of the Judges’ Selection for the Jimi Hendrix Experience Tour and the Steve Vai Best In Shred Competition.

Electric 5’s dynamic performances are perfectly suited for both public and private events, including corporate parties, weddings, festivals, cocktail soirées, galas, and conferences. Their sophisticated act will leave a lasting impression on you and your guests – whether they are the main attraction or a dazzling enhancement to the opening or closing of your event.

Each a gifted soloist in their own right, these superb musicians are all classically trained with advanced degrees from prestigious Music Schools, and have played for some of the Nation’s leading orchestras, including Chicago Sinfonietta, Illinois Philharmonic, Colorado Symphony, Fort Wayne Philharmonic, and Illinois Symphony. The Ladies eventually went beyond the conventions and constraints of classical music to become some of Chicago’s most versatile and accomplished string performers, having played alongside music legends like Lauryn Hill, Yo-Yo Ma, Midori, Josh Groban, Chance the Rapper, Sarah Chang, Patti LaBelle, Lupe Fiasco and Itzhak Perlman.
