The Correction Line Ensemble is a newly formed chamber ensemble involving six musicians from diverse backgrounds, weaving together an engaging and seamless conversation between classical and modern music: former Winnipegger Cristina Zacharias, a violinist with the renowned Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra; Leanne Zacharias, a Brandon-based cellist specializing in contemporary music; Ed Reifel, a Toronto-based percussionist of classical and modern music; Robert Honstein, a Brooklyn-based composer from the classical music tradition; and Christine Fellows and John K. Samson, two Winnipeg-based narrative songwriters. Together, these six musicians create and perform arrangements of original and classical repertoire arranged for cello, violin, marimba/percussion, piano, electric guitar and six voices, bridging the gap between musical genres and disciplines.
