Evolution of Music

Many thanks to my super awesome friend Kevin Chung – http://www.youtube.com/user/TheEvilCow1 – and Ryan Yu!

This is our little medley of songs representative of the different time periods music has traversed through. We know this may not be the most historically accurate, but we mainly chose songs that would transfer well to solo violin and cello, taking inspiration from groups such as String Fever and Igudesman and Joo.

We also performed this same medley at AJ Rafael’s Music Speaks 2012 as the winner of his audition contest. Hope you guys enjoy our video/music, and special brownie points to anyone who can name all the songs we used 😉
