Cello rock band Break of Reality to give concert at Davis High

By From page A7 | April 30, 2014

The cello rock band Break of Reality will perform at Davis High School on Wednesday, May 7, at 7 p.m., appearing with the Davis High School Chamber Orchestra. There is no charge for tickets, though a $5 donation at the door is suggested, with all proceeds benefiting the Davis High music program. Those planning to attend must RSVP online in order to reserve seats, at http://breakofreality.com/tour.

Break of Reality features three cellos and percussion. The group formed when the original members were freshmen at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. The group is now based in New York, and is known for their recording of the “Game of Thrones” theme, which has generated more than 2.5 million views online.

Break of Reality is currently on tour, visiting 10 high schools around the country, including Davis High, to give workshops and promote music education. The group recently released a new album titled “Ten,” which has gotten more than 20 million plays on the Pandora radio online service.

Ian Trevino, a founding member of Break of Reality, said the group is making the tour to support the kind of music programs that gave its members their start.

“We learned to play our instruments through public school music programs,” Trevino said. “If it weren’t for these music programs, I don’t think Break of Reality would exist today.”
