Get ready to rev up your holiday season as you listen to the amazing, immersive and absolutely mesmerizing Dallas String Quartet, live at the historic Cactus Theater! Also referred to as DSQ or DSQ Electric, is a #2 Billboard charting American Classical Crossover ensemble founded in 2007 by composer and violist Ion Zanca. A fusion of contemporary classical and pop music, DSQ is referred to as “Bach meets Bon Jovi” and is compared to artists like Lindsey Stirling, Vitamin String Quartet, Brooklyn Duo and 2Cellos. They use both traditional and electric strings performing as a quartet with the full accompaniment of drums and guitar. The group is known for their eclectic renditions of everything from Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child O’ Mine” to Taylor Swift’s “Anti-Hero” to their collaboration, “You Are The Reason,” with The Piano Guys. DSQ has performed for Presidents Obama and Bush, with superstars like Ed Sheeran, Luke Combs and Ashley McBryde, at the Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM Awards), for NBA and NFL organizations and their cover of Katy Perry’s “Firework” was featured on the most recent season of American Idol.

In 2021, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton sought out DSQ as the entertainment for their wedding and in Oct. 2022, their album “Love Always” debuted at #2 on the Billboard Chart (in both Classical Crossover Albums and Classical Albums). DSQ is also featured on the 2023 GRAMMY-nominated album, “The Passenger” by Cheryl B. Engelhardt. The core group is composed of violist Ion Zanca, violinists Valory Hight and Melissa Priller, and bassist Young Heo.
