Cellist Sascha Groschang is no stranger to new music. Since 2009, she's performed with the alternative strings duo The Wires. But in a collaboration with the contemporary chamber ensemble, newEar, Groschang says she's found herself pushing the boundaries of music, sound ... and noise.

Cellist Sascha Groschang and violinist Laurel Morgan Parks have been good friends since they trained together as classical musicians at UMKC’s Conservatory of Music and Dance. They perform around the region, and internationally, in symphony orchestras and chamber groups.  They’ve also delved into traditional folk, rock and jazz genres.  (Parks plays in the Kansas City folk-rock band, In The Pines.)
