There is always a first for everything.
Including classical music featured here.
Or is it??
The Section Quartet are a group based in LA and they specialize in turning real good songs into classical quartet pieces.
They have done countless covers for the likes of The Clash, Coldplay, Queens of Stone Age and even the YYY’s.
I heard they got featured on Gossip Girl and chuck bass fans are looking all over for these.
