    Spinphony fuses Classical, Rock, and Pop favorites into unique and catchy mash-ups. The crossover string group also writes their own originals in a style they call "Pop Baroque." While sticking to their classical roots by performing virtuosic classics like Vivaldi summer and Beethoven string quartets, Spinphony creates a fresh new take on the classics by mashing them up with rock and pop favorites such as Kashmir and Smooth Criminal and adding high energy orchestrated backing tracks from the DJ. They perform more in the style of a rock band than a traditional string quartet with choreographed dance moves and interaction with the audience. Spinphony's unique style and high energy performances have taken them across the U.S. and Mexico, performing for both public and private events.
