There have been some big changes recently in the Videri String Quartet. Just over a year ago, they found themselves looking for two new violinists! A happy set of referrals added Chris Ferrara and Matheus Garcia Souza to the original ensemble that includes violist Rosie Samter and cellist Jeremiah Barcus.

Now the Videri is ready to debut their new program, Bits and Bytes, which features movements from string quartets by Antonin Dvorak, Benjamin Britten and Joseph Haydn, alongside their incredible arrangements of music from games including Chrono Trigger, Journey, Final Fantasy VII and Xenogears!

The Videri String Quartet is presenting their new program in three concerts in the New York City area: Monday, December 17 atLong Island Conservatory; Tuesday, December 18 at Great Neck Conservatory, and a live stream concert from Skillman Music Studioon Wednesday, December 19.

The Videri also have some recordings incollectionsreleased by Materia Collective, and more on the way!
