Attention, Musicians! 

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 this free reading session, combining classical performance with the excitement and energy of music from video games, is for you! 

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.
