The best kept secret in music

Press


"I can only tell you that they sound like thunder and violence, Tim Burton, corsets, red fingernails, and just the slightest rays of sweetness, like actual music".

-Sara Cress - Houston Chronicle


"...Hitchcock-like horror-film elements, lush romantic sections and humor."

-Dominic Walsh of the Dominic Walsh Dance Theater - Houston Chronicle


“What makes Two Star Symphony interesting is its fearlessness, creativity, sense of humor, and, well, you can't deny there is something sexy about girls playing stringed instruments in a bar."

-Sara Cress - Houston Chronicle

Bio

Two Star Symphony is Houston’s most unusual string ensemble performing all original music. Since its inception in 2002, the group has played many venues from small bars to vast auditoriums, collaborated with local theaters and traveled to both coasts to perform. Their aim is to create new and diverse music that speaks to the collective conscience of a broad audience, with music evoking starkly sketched imagery: a drunken pirate walks the plank, a marionette gains its footing, a black cat turns and hisses, a poisoned apple is offered, and goblins attack.

Each member’s unique background brings together an eclectic variety of music styles, including gypsy, rock, hip-hop, metal, classical and electronic. Their hunger to experiment and explore this art form has captured the imaginations of the young and old, despite whatever previously held notions they may have had of musical ensembles.
