Vitamin String Quartet - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Vitamin String Quartet
Comprised of a rotating collective of top classical musicians, Vitamin String Quartet (VSQ) is known for its sophisticated twist on rock and pop’s biggest acts. Fusing master technique with rock n’ roll attitude, VSQ boldly reinvents the music of popular acts such as Muse, Led Zeppelin, and Adele with its highly successful album series and stunning live performances.
Beginning in 1999 as an experiment in transforming rock songs with classical instruments, VSQ has gone on to explore the vast landscape of rock and pop. As VSQ continues to a build a diverse catalog, they’ve sold millions of units, including two Billboard hits with VSQ Performs Lady Gaga and VSQ Performs Modern Rock Hits 2012, Vol. 1. VSQ recordings have been used in hit TV series such as So You Think You Can Dance, Big Love and The Vampire Diaries, and the group has appeared on The CW’s hit TV show Gossip Girl and with 30 Seconds to Mars on MTV’s Unplugged.
VSQ has garnered a huge online following and devoted fan base, including many of the popular artists to whom VSQ has paid tribute. Premier rock groups Dream Theater and As I Lay Dying participated in VSQ’s tribute to their respective bands, and other popular acts such as The Killers, Mastodon, and Coheed & Cambria are known to play VSQ albums at their shows.
One of VSQ’s biggest honors came when Disney invited the group to contribute their reinterpretation of part of Danny Elfman’s original score to The Nightmare Before Christmas. Their version of “Jack and Sally Montage” was presented alongside covers from Marilyn Manson, Korn, and Amy Lee of Evanescence on the all-star tribute, Nightmare Revisited.
VSQ continues its cutting-edge album series and is now bringing its amazing repertoire to life on stages around the world.
