What Is A String Quartet?
- OUTLINE -
Many students may be familiar with a band instrument, but not a string instrument which is the backbone of a symphony orchestra. Utilising our versatile repertoire that spans Classical, Tango, Jazz, Broadway, and Pop, we hope to demonstrate that a Classical string quartet can be cool; and inspire your students to seek out a broader range of music, or even pick up a string instrument. VETTA Quartet's (www.vettaquartet.com) specialty is our special arrangements of Pop music which challenges the boundaries between Classical and Pop. * Sample Programme * - Brief Introduction of String Quartet Instruments - 1st piece: Canon in D (Classical) - Introduction to the Layering Concept of a Canon - 2nd piece: La Cumpasita (Tango) - Introduction and Demonstration of Violin - 3rd piece: Take Five (Jazz) - Introduction and Demonstration of Viola - 4th piece: Theme From New York, New York (Broadway) - Introduction and Demonstration of Cello - 5th piece: A Thousand Years (Film) - 6th piece: Viva La Vida by Coldplay (Pop) - Encore: Lucky by Jason Mraz , The Moon Represents My Heart (月亮代表我的心) by Teresa Teng, Let It Go from Frozen
