LOCALS ONLY: Cellists set to rock out at free show

The words “cello rock band” may sound like an oxymoron, but that isn’t stopping the members of Break of Reality.

The group — cellists Patrick Laird, Laura Metcalf and Adrian Daurov and percussionist Ivan Trevino — will play a free concert at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Green Valley High School, 460 Arroyo Grande Blvd. in Henderson.

Since the stop is part of the band’s Music Education Tour, a $5 donation is suggested. All proceeds will benefit the school’s music program. The band also will lead educational workshops at the school.
