7 Degrees Ensemble is a touring and recording chamber music ensemble of string and vocal musicians who offer high-caliber, sophisticated musical performances for music festivals, special events and occasions. Founded in 2016, the ensemble includes four performing artists based in the San Francisco Bay Area: Jakob Sonnek (guitar), Taryn Rosenquist (violin, piano, voice), Claire MacKenzie (voice, frame drum), and Kurt Gramckow (‘oud). We believe that music is a powerful connector of peoples. Our mission is to introduce audiences to classical and traditional repertoire which reveals a common musical ancestry and kinship shared around the globe. Join us for our upcoming performances as we explore our musical heritage.
