Kids Commute - Pop! Goes the Classical Week - Monday

Oct 1, 2018

Today, we'll hear the Vitamin String Quartet perform, "Uptown Funk!"

Happy Monday, Kids Commuters! Welcome to POP! GOES THE CLASSICAL Week on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio. This week, we have fun discovering musical ensembles that have traditional classical training and apply it to music that is popular today.

Vitamin String Quartet is non-traditional string quartet. It’s actually run by a record company that uses lots of different artists, producers, and arrangers to create the music. The quartet started in 1999 making tribute albums. These albums were successful enough that Vitamin Records decided to make the Vitamin String Quartet official. They are still producing music and performing all over the place.

Today, we'll hear the VSQ perform "Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars.
