      EVENT DETAILS
      Landmark LIVE: The OK Factor

      Americana, roots, and folk music fans can get tickets for Landmark Center’s fall concert series! Cocktail reception: 7 pm // Doors: 7:30 pm // Concert: 8 pm All Landmark Live concerts are presented by Landmark Center and Minnesota Music Coalition with sponsorship support from KFAI Radio and the Pioneer Press. Again this year, Minnesota Music Coalition artists will be opening acts, and each performance is hosted by personalities from KFAI Radio and/or Minnesota Music Coalition. Olivia Diercks and Karla Colahan, cellist and violinist of the new-classical crossover duo, The OK Factor, have one word to describe their musical connection: lucky. Organic and genuine, their original compositions feel both comfortingly familiar and uniquely fresh, and have been described as "genre-bending" (Julie Amacher, MPR) and "pure magic" (Wausau Pilot & Review). The ease with which they write and perform has caught the attention of the Minnesota music community in which they live and work, bringing them success on stages such as The Cedar Cultural Center and as frequent featured artists with Minnesota Public Radio. Their distinct compositional and performance style awarded them the honor of being finalists for the prestigious McKnight Fellowships for Musicians in 2018. Within their six years of writing, performing, and regional touring, The OK Factor has been in residence with Minnesota Public Radio's Class Notes Artists program ('16), at The Grand Theater in Wausau ('17), College of Saint Benedict ('17), and Luther College ('18), sharing their intimate performances, outreach activities, and educational workshops with these communities. Diercks and Colahan are also sought-after collaborators, having partnered with numerous Minnesota composers and musicians including singer-songwriters Ellis Delaney and Lynn O'Brien, percussionists Jenny Klukken and Krissy Bergmark, and composer and Boston Ballet Music Director, Mischa Santora, among others. They have produced three studio albums of original pieces and arrangements: “Water Street” ('14), “That's Enough of That” ('16), “Have Yourself an OK Christmas” ('17), and “Love, The OK Factor, Lullabies & Love Songs,” released in January of 2019. Cocktail hour begins at 7pm, the auditorium will open at 7:30pm and the concert will begin at 8:00pm. Reserved Seating - $20.00

      Cost: 20.00
