Utilizing the same energy, panache and innovative stage performance that Barrage was known for, Barrage 8 features all the instruments in the modern string family.

The "8" in the name represents a re-imagining of the string octet: 5 violins, viola, cello and double bass. This instrumentation drives a rich and powerful sonic palette that further explores the musical diversity in their compositions and arrangements. Barrage 8 presents what the Barrage name has come to represent worldwide:

"A memorable presentation of music, from many genres and cascading generations, delivered in a way not seen or heard before."
