Dawson-Boyd Arts Association announces the second event of its season at Memorial Auditorium in Dawson – the talented and dynamic string duo, The OK Factor, performing on Saturday, October 29 at 7:00pm.
Playful and unexpected, new-classical crossover duo The OK Factor writes and performs folk-inspired music influenced by multiple genres and styles, with an artistry that reveals their classical training. Cellist Olivia Diercks and violinist Karla Colahan find great joy in defying expectations and delivering an experience outside of what audiences anticipate from a cello and violin combo. Their passion for performing and educational outreach has continued to bring them success in communities across the Midwest and abroad, inviting audiences to explore music and cultivate a curiosity about its role in their lives.
The OK Factor’s time in Dawson will include outreach sessions with the school district orchestra students, performing at the Johnson Memorial Care Center and other community appearances. Details will be on the Dawson-Boyd Arts Association website (here) and Facebook page.
Event sponsors for this event are Ralph & Sue Gerbig, FM Bank and Gary & Ingrid Larson.
Tickets are available online, at the door or by calling 320-312-2311.
Prior to the concert, the Dawson-Boyd Arts Association will hold its annual meeting in the Dawson-Boyd Commons beginning at 6:30pm.
