CMA Host – Dévah Quartet

Entertainment: Dévah Quartet

Dévah recently released their second album 2112, which features a full length instrumental tribute to Canadian icon RUSH's suite of the same name. The other track on this album, "Heaven and Hell," is an original piece inspired by a short story written by Andrew Watters. For this album, Dévah is joined by drummer Mack Longpre, as well as featuring vocalists Sara Loera (USA), and Rob Lundgren (Norway), and a full choir for "Heaven and Hell." This album embodies everything Dévah considers their strengths: prog rock/metal, acoustic strings, and collaboration.

A multi-genre (note: not cross-genre) string quartet, Dévah has held residencies at the University of Toronto’s New Music Festival performing works on both acoustic and electric instruments, and atSan Jacinto College in Texas as visiting artists, where they provide masterclasses and composer workshops with both sets of instruments.

Dévah’s Progressive Rock alter-ego has resulted in being featured in the UK magazine PROG and notable performances including Canada Day at Yonge and Dundas Square, the 3-year countdown launch for the Pan Am Games, and featured guest artists at Interprovincial Music Camp’s CAMP ROCK. When in Progressive Rock mode, Dévah performs high energy sets on electric instrumentswith effects pedals and wireless cables, enabling them to encourage interaction with the audience through movement. Dévah Quartet’s shows are performed by memory and backed by a drummer, and at times accompanied by a projection artist.

No stranger to multi-disciplinary collaboration, Dévah has performed live with dancers, including Toronto’s A2D2 Aerial Dancers, and a special collaboration with ballet dancers for the Kubrick: A Clockwork Orange installation party during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.

Classically trained, Dévah Quartet’s members are active principal players in Toronto-based ensembles. Violinist Emily Hau is Principal Second of Sinfonia Toronto, violinist Sharon Lee is Concertmaster of Toronto Concert Orchestra, cellist Liza McLellan was cellist of Quartetto Gelato for nine years, violist Moira Burke plays for Mirvish productions.

Dévah Quartet became Yamaha Canada Artists in 2011, and D’Addario Canada Artists in 2013.
