Darlingside with Maine Youth Rock Orchestra

Sunday January 13, 2019
$35 public / $30 members

This event will take place at the Keiter Center at Walnut Hill School for the Arts

Boston-based quartet Darlingside performs their music around a single vocal microphone, inviting audiences into a lush, intimate world where four voices become one. Their signature superpower harmonies draw frequent comparisons to late-60's era groups like Crosby, Stills & Nash; Simon & Garfunkel; and The Byrds. These four close friends construct every piece of their music collaboratively, pooling musical and lyrical ideas so that each song bears the imprint of four different writing voices. NPR Music dubs the result "exquisitely-arranged, literary-minded, baroque folk-pop", and calls Extralife "perfectly crafted".

Their 2016 performance at the Cambridge Folk Festival "earned an ecstatic reception and turned them into instant stars", according to The Daily Telegraph. The band tours regularly throughout the United States, Canada, and the UK, and will embark on its first tour of Germany in November 2018.

Maine Youth Rock Orchestra redefines music education for students of all backgrounds and demographics through collaboration with national artists, creating transformational experiences. Students who participate in MYRO ensembles are able to express their individuality through a classical skill set, while performing concerts with nationally-recognized artists that reinforce their love for alternative genres from classical.
