Pan Morigan is an award-winning vocalist, songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer. She is known for her silvery, wide-ranging voice and passionate stage presence. Her genre-defying songs are influenced equally by the wide, stormy skies and wild lakes of the Midwest, where she was raised, and the experience of living, as a child, in a city full of immigrants and seekers whose music was everywhere to be heard, live and percolating. Most important, Pan calls her songs ‘music of the imagination.’
Since 2004, The Boston String Quartet has created exciting waves as New England’s leading contemporary string ensemble. The impact of their musical success, ignited with their refreshing approach, has not just been enjoyed in the New England area. Frequent U.S. tours have taken them to the Los Angeles Music Awards, even to the likes of former President, George H. W. Bush. Now, New England’s revered musical talent returns to honor the area that gave them their musical wings, and towns across the area will be been given an opportunity to be amongst the privileged list of those honored to witness The Boston String Quartet’s musical genius and unseen approach.
