Videogame Quintet Performance

A live performance for Seattle’s Marrowstone in the City program. The music was arranged by the genius Lennart Jansson (Link) and Gen Kim(Ash Ketchum). Gen choreographed all the extra bits behind them as they play and sang the Halo theme, of course. The Tetris bit is a tribute to the old a capella group that did game themes. Lennart is playing an ocarina there, and Gen drumming the top of my violin. Hope you enjoy.

Kirby

1st Violin – Koyo Kim (Mario)
