45th Parallel Universe is a collective of musicians who come together to celebrate great chamber music with intimate artistic experiences. Founded by Greg Ewer, a violinist of insatiable curiosity, 45th Parallel stands apart from the city’s other chamber groups by its borderless and unbounded innovation. Since 2009, 45th Parallel has happily demolished distinctions between old and new chamber music, bluegrass and jazz, fiddle and folk.
