Students at Daniel Pearl Magnet High School (DPMHS) were thrilled when they learned that the Kadima String Quartet was coming to perform and were eager to see the show.

“I thought the show was very interesting and soothing,” freshman Bianca Lam said.

On Nov. 2, the Kadima String Quartet came to DPMHS and played songs ranging from “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik” by Mozart to “All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor.

The performance opened with musicians Eric KM Clark and Brian Benning on the violin, Beth Elliot on the viola and Lynn Angebranndt on the cello, all sitting in a circle, playing their instruments. They wore black clothing and had focused looks on their faces.

 The quartet visited DPMHS as a part of their Interactive Music Exploration Tour. Throughout the show, students were taught about the history of music and learned about these instruments.

Students were able to vote on which songs were played during the performance.

“I liked the Gremlins song. I love the Gremlins,” senior Cameron Vega said.
