We are forty/sixty


forty/sixty is an adventurous, young string trio dedicated to new music and founded out of a desire to perform new works, bring improvisation to the concert stage, and use music as a vehicle for social commentary and change. Robin Rhodes, Olivia Harris, and Angela Lamb met at the Next Festival of Emerging Artists, where late night improv sessions led to the creation of the trio. forty/sixty actively commissions new works, collaborates across mediums with fellow artists, and seeks ways to keep their music relevant in the social and political spheres. Through powerful performance and cross-collaboration in a diverse array of venues, forty/sixty strives to push the boundaries of the traditional concert experience.
