The Videri String Quartet has been experimenting with how they implement classical music into their video game music concerts. Or, perhaps it’s the other way around?
We’ve known the Videri “kids” for many years now. Half of them, anyway. Rosalie Samter, who plays viola, and Jeremiah Barcus, are founding members of the quartet. The newest additions are the violinists: Matheus Souza and Chris Ferrara.
It was fun to get caught up with old friends, make new ones, and hear about their musical journey through game music and classical repertoire.
