The Section Quartet

This is an amazing string quartet of four musicians. Instruments include two violens, viola, and a cello. I love classical music but I never seem to find the right time to play it, I always feel a bit odd playing classical in my car. The Section Quartet is the PERFECT classical sounding music. They have turned popular rock sounds into classical quartet pieces. Genius. They have recreated songs from Radiohead, Tool, Nine Inch Nails, Christina Aguilera, The Strokes, Coldplay, The Clash, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs (my favorite). I read somewhere that The Section Quartet has performed at the Coachella Valley Music Festival and Arts Festival in 2004 and 2006. I hope they play again in 2012, that would be such a treat!
