The 300 Watts String Trio consists of three siblings: 16-year old violist Shania Watts, 14-year old cellist Jonathan Watts, and 12-year old violinist Darah Watts. In the four years they’ve been playing together as an ensemble, they’ve created a number of their own arrangements born of improvisation and their varied musical interests (jazz, latin, and eastern music influence their creations). As you might imagine, though, being a sibling ensemble can be tricky; in this episode of “On Deck” the three of them talk animatedly with host Christa Wessel about the disagreements that can crop up when creating art together. You’re going to love these kids! If you would like to see them playing one of their arrangements, click here. Tune in Saturday February 18 at 5 pm to get to know them.
