This medley for violin and piano was arranged by Lindsey Stirling, who
came to fame after her appearance on "America's Got Talent" for her
unique and hip violin playing. The medley contains the songs: Angel of
Music - The Music of the Night - The Phantom of the Opera - Think of Me.
Bach and Before for Strings contains the same 19 chorales as Bach and Before for Band. Newly set in string-friendly keys, the string book cannot be used in conjunction with the band book. However, the book does provide material that is easily tailored to all string ensembles. Because each part book includes all four voice parts (soprano, alto, tenor, and bass) there are unlimited opportunities to introduce unison playing to the string orchestra. Unison playing is the most efficient way to improve the overall quality of a string orchestra's sound, and is the foundation of playing in-tune. The chorales range in difficulty from very easy to very sophisticated and are suitable for year two through high school string orchestras.
