PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — The Center for the Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville will present Break of Reality on Thursday, April 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the Richard and Helen Brodbeck Concert Hall.

Break of Reality is an American cello quartet based in New York. Formed at the Eastman School of Music in 2003, the band is filling concert venues around the country with fans eager to hear “cello rock.” Break of Reality has given hundreds of performances across the country, from New York City clubs such as Joe’s Pub to classical music halls such as the Eastman Theatre.

Along with performing, the group has written music for dance, film and television, including an Emmy award-winning episode of “AIR: America’s Investigative Reports” on PBS. Through their affiliation with Pandora Radio, Break of Reality’s music has been streamed over six million times. The band has released three albums, which have sold more than 40,000 copies worldwide.

They’ve been applauded for their genuine technique, and their ability to rock out like they mean it. Time Out New York Newspaper claims, “Break of Reality will win a Grammy someday, bank on it.”
