Classical guitarist and composer Darren Curtis Skanson along with his ensemble of cello and violin present classical, Spanish, and modern music as The Skanson Strings. Skanson’s arrangements and compositions are more gentle and melodic than other modern guitar artists. The trio performs a wide variety of classical pieces, including well-known favorites such as Beethoven's "Fur Elise" and "Ode To Joy”, plus his own original compositions, blending the two into a seamless listening experience. The harmonies he creates are incredibly  unique and fresh sounding.
