Break of Reality Concert to Benefit Shorewood Orchestra

On Friday, May 16, at 7 p.m. the cello rock quartet Break of Reality will be performing locally, with proceeds benefiting the Shorewood High School orchestra program. The performance, which is open to the public, will be held at Homestead High School in Mequon and will be free, although a $5 donation is suggested. The band will also host a workshop with students at SHS earlier in the day. 

The show is part of Break of Reality's Music Education Tour (funded by donations raised on the website Kickstarter) which aims to provide educational workshops and performances at public schools around the nation. The visits are completely free for all schools, and proceeds raised at the performance will be used to benefit the schools' music programs. 

"We learned to play our instruments through public school programs," Ivan Trevino, a founding member of Break of Reality says. "If it weren't for these music programs, I don't think Break of Reality would exist today." 

According to Time Out New York, Break of Reality puts the classical in classic rock, with its heavy, exotic original compositions and instrumental arrangements of hard-rock standards. Click here to view a clip of Break of Reality performing the theme of the hit HBO series "Game of Thrones."
