Stringfever, a quartet, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 26, in the Chalberg Theatre on the Brainerd campus of Central Lakes College (CLC), presented as part of CLC's Cultural Arts Series.

Hailing from London, England, Stringfever is touring the United States with its high-energy show that has been seen by audiences from coast-to-coast.

The quartet plays a medley of movie music themes, often run as a contest with a prize for anyone guessing all 20 themes. Stringfever plays Ravel's masterpiece "Bolero" with two audience volunteers and the four band members playing one cello at the same time. "The History of Music in Five Minutes" is made up of 40 tunes packed into a frenetic 5-minute finale.

Stringfever is made up of three brothers and a cousin, all sharing the last name Broadbent. Giles, the big brother, plays a bright blue 5 string Violectra. Ralph, the middle brother, plays a sunburst yellow and green 6-string Violectra.

Neal, the little brother, plays a red 5-string Violectra.
