Encompassing a world of orchestral performance and arrangement knowledge, local string quartet ATLYS is nothing short of spectacular. As the original violist for Mother Falcon, Rita Andrade formed ATLYS in Chicago alongside violinist Jinty McTavish and twin sisters Sabrina and Genevieve Tabby, on violin and cello respectively. The result is a tranquil but powerful sound that catches the listener off-guard with how each musician effortlessly lends their solo performance to lush arrangements.
ATLYS performs alongside Mother Falcon this Wednesday at Spiderhouse. Enjoy a track recorded in the great Alaskan outdoors and featuring collaboration with former Mother Falcon fronting member Claire Puckett – “Apples And Apricots”.
