POP MUSIC ON STRINGS
Radio Music Society is a string ensemble that I formed with my twin brother. We weren't good enough for the symphony and didn't want to play "dry classical" music, so we started writing string quartet versions of our favorite pop hits and a weird music group was born.
THE (POP) MUSIC
There aren't a whole lot of arrangements of popular music for string quartet that are of this decade.
In order to play anything, we arranged all the music ourselves. Top 40 hits, alternative, rock - basically anything with a melody was fair game.
Note: It takes a few seconds to load after clicking play (but totally worth it if you haven't heard music like this before).
And here are some of the weird concert themes I created.
