FREDERICK, Maryland—The Triforce Quartet, a traditional string quartet that plays video game music, will perform at Hood College on Nov. 12 at 3 p.m. in Brodbeck Music Hall.
The Triforce Quartet began innocently with a short Zelda medley for an encore at a recital in early 2007, but the video of using traditional string quartet instruments to play music of classic games gained viral popularity later that summer. Thanks to this exposure, cellist Chad Schwartz was able to combine his love for video games, along with years of classical training, to arrange a variety of video game themes that even non-gamers can enjoy. The four members of the Triforce Quartet take audience members on an unforgettable musical journey.
The Triforce Quartet has played in front of sold out shows at PAX Prime in Seattle, PAX East in Boston; MAGFest in Washington, D.C., the iDIG Music Festival in Ireland and with “Video Games Live!,” a touring concert that emphasizes the cultural significance and artistry of the video game industry.
Sponsored by the Hood College Department of Music, this concert is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Wayne Wold at 301-696-3782 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
