- Wedding: June 2013
I had a string quartet at my wedding that played 80% modern music and 20% classical music (at my mom’s request, otherwise it would have been all modern music!) and my favourite modern song they played was “Firework” by Katy Perry. I thought this was their “thing.”
OH HELL NO. I had no idea playing modern music in a quartet was a “thing” until I found Vitamin String Quartet on Grooveshark. (I know, I’m really late to the VSQ party!) Which leads me to this question:
Favourite Modern String Quartet Song: Definitely Firework by Wellington Music. (The ending is a bit fudged on this link, but it gives me goosebumps!)
Modern Song You Wish A String Quartet Would Perform: Probably something ridiculous like Super Bass by Nicki Minaj or I Wanna Dance With Somebody by Whitney Houston. Or ANYTHING Black Eyed Peas. How fun!
What are YOUR favourite versions of modern string quartet songs? Post ’em!
