Video Game String Ensemble Do you play violin, viola, cello, or double bass? Have you always wanted to play the music from video games? If the answers to these questions is yes, then join Michelle Eng at Patrick Henry Library on January 21 from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. for a free session, combining classical performance with the excitement and energy of music from video games. Musicians of all levels are encouraged to join, but instrumentalists should have at least 2 years of experience on their instrument, can sight read, and can play at an intermediate level. This is the music that is stuck in your head all day, and now you can play it on your instrument with other fans! Please bring your own instrument, music stand, and pencil.
