Ethos artists are selected for their concert-level tier of performance, and willingness to experiment and create novel musical experiences. Our core players are based in Charleston with varied international backgrounds and resumes, representing France, Ukraine, Slovakia, Japan, and more. Expect the musical skill of top classical artists, mixed with a plethora of genres and instrumental combinations. The possibilities start from traditional repertoire, to a set of swinging-jazz, modern pop, and customized sets with a DJ, pianist, vocalists, and more. Additional staging elements include costumes, lighting, and a dedicated sound team.
