Composer and multi-instrumentalist Zuriel Merek captivates his audiences with passionate electric violin performances. He seamlessly integrates classical technique with modern innovations and technologies he developed over the past decade while playing rock and other popular styles of music with many of the most outstanding bands in DFW’s music scene. As a solo artist, he specializes in live looping—the recording and playback of music in real-time—with his freshly reimagined arrangements of contemporary songs and a curated repertoire that spans a wide range of rock, pop, and soundtrack favorites from artists such as U2, Adele, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, Elvis Presley, Maroon 5, Guns N' Roses, and Hans Zimmer. Zuriel forged his musical journey alongside a career teaching high school AP and IB history classes, and in 2017, with the support of his students and fellow faculty, he took the courageous leap to invest fully in his music career and release his debut solo instrumental album, The Tao Less Traveled. Zuriel produced, composed for, and performed all the instruments on the record—an original, emotive blend of rock, classical, and cinematic soundscapes. Zuriel performs both as an original music act with his backing band and as a cover artist via his solo electric violin live looping experience.

Mark Landson’s Classically Jazzed takes classical masterpieces from Vivaldi, Bach and other composers and turns them into eclectic jazz works simply by substituting the typical orchestra of the early 1700’s with a modern jazz combo. The resulting sound is something both true to the original genius of the great composers and an amazingly contemporary expression of our own time. Reviews of performances have been stellar. TheaterJones said “Mark Landson and his Open Classical group have done it again—they’ve made classical music both innovative and fun”, calling it a “delightful performance” with “consistently excellent musicians.” CraveDFW said “Always innovative, Open Classical just raised the bar.”
