We’re in the middle of POP! GOES THE CLASSICAL Week from Kids Commute by Interlochen Public Radio. Join the fun as we highlight musicians who put a classical twist on modern music.

Friction Quartet not only uses their creativity to reinvent modern music, they are active in commissioning works from modern composers to expand the repertoire available to string quartet ensembles. An extra cool feature is that Friction Quartet was the string quartet in residence at the 2018 Interlochen Arts Camp, right here in Interlochen, Michigan.

Today, Friction Quartet will peform a chamber version of "Little Red Corvette" by Prince, arranged by the group's cellist, Doug Machiz. Friction Quartet performed the song just for us in IPR's Studio A! To hear our full interview with them, click here.
