A Cello built in 1913 and processed through today's looping technology creates a live orchestra of strings framed by two drummers, including Violent Femmes founding member Victor DeLorenzo. The result is the unique chamber rock trio from Milwaukee known as Nineteen Thirteen.

Nineteen Thirteen will perform at Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts (Thelma) Friday, Feb. 28 in the newly expanded and redesigned Great Hall.

A mix of old and new technology, cellist Janet Schiff, Scott Johnson on drums, and world-renowned DeLorenzo create an individual and unique sound.

DeLorenzo spoke about his transition from the Violent Femmes to the chamber rock trio of Nineteen Thirteen.

"The music I played with Violent Femmes prepared me to contribute in almost any type of situation that I may find myself in via music, acting or life," he said. "The Fems grew up together, and the Fems grew apart together. We made History. The music of Nineteen Thirteen is about beauty, melody, style and grace. Our three individual styles of playing compliment the magic that is the soulful sound of cello and drums lovingly played together. Nineteen Thirteen makes me swing," DeLorenzo said.

The concert begins at 8 p.m., with the bar opening at 7 p.m. Tickets are $30 and a table for four is $150. Thelma members receive 20 percent off. Tickets are available at thelmaarts.org.

Thelma is located at 51 Sheboygan St., in the heart of Downtown Fond du Lac's Arts and Entertainment District.
