A Costumed Symphony Tribute to Video Games

Wow, what a great video to wake up to. This may be the coolest thing I’ve seen!

This is a live performance of Seattle’s Marrowstone in the City program. This quartet plays a medley of songs from video games – and they’re in costume! It’s kind hard to see the two in back – I think one is dressed as Link (ah, yes. The credits say Ash Ketchum and Link). But you can clearly see Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach play some of the finest music in the world.

Here’s a rundown of all the songs they play:

The Legend of Zelda
Pokemon
Halo
Tetris
Kirby
Pong
Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario World

1st Violin – Koyo Kim (Mario)
2nd Violin – Gen Kim (Ash Ketchum)
Viola – Justine Preston (Luigi)
1st Cello – Lennart Jansson (Link)
2nd Cello – Sarah Stone (Princess Peach)

Bravo!

Thanks so much to Meegan for the tip!
