Stick&Bow, formed by Krystina Marcoux (marimba) and Juan Sebastian Delgado (cello), explores, arranges and commissions works that are both daring and enjoyable. In concerts for chamber music audiences and for children, they combine music with story-telling. The powerful combination of the cello with the marimba transforms familiar works in refreshing and unexpected ways.
