As a UBC Music string quartet, we found a passion playing music of multiple genres, be it jazz, latin, contemporary, classical, and folk. When the pandemic restrictions first hit, we decided to publish a video to show that we could still make music even from a distance given the circumstances. The Danish String Quartet published multiple albums of folk music that they wrote their own arrangements for, and we decided we would perform one of them!

Tjonneblomen by Gjermund Haugen, Arranged by Danish String Quartet
A quartet compromised of UBC music students, we were friends who met through summer camps and school and played together as friends before officially forming a group to perform officially. A South African saying, Ubuntu can be roughly translated to “I am who I am through each of us,” which we believed to be a fitting statement that best represents our group.
