JOLT Powered by The Fort Smith Symphony


Jolt™ is an innovative and unique, fully electronic string quartet, bringing a new musical experience to the greater Fort Smith region. Jolt™ brings string quartet music to an entirely different level combining a classical ensemble with elements from Rock, Pop, Jazz, Country and Patriotic music to name
just a few.

Jolt™ includes two violinists, a violist and a cellist/bassist all playing on electronic string instruments connected to multi-effect processors with the ability to create hundreds of different sounds and effects. The quartet is joined by stellar region guest vocalists and instrumentalists at community
events near you.

Jolt™ is a rarity in today’s world of the symphony but totally cool! Thank you, Dream Alliance!
