A New Playlist!

Over winter break, my mom and I have enjoyed binging the new Netflix series Bridgerton. The show is set in the the middle of the Regency era of England, so it was quite a surprise to hear Ariana Grande's "thank u, next" play in the middle of the first episode. The series boasts a lot of modern changes to the stories made popular by Julia Quinn's novels, and modern music rerecorded as orchestra pieces is one of them. This was a fun aspect of the show for me. I played the violin all throughout middle and high school, and one of my favorite concerts was a Pop Culture Show where my teacher/conductor let us play current hits like "All About That Bass" by Megan Trainor. 

Most of these rerecorded songs were performed by the Vitamin String Quartet. I've found they have a ton of other orchestral covers of current music and have slowly been working my way through them and picking my favorites. That being said, I wanted to share a screenshot of the new playlist I've been working on! It's great for writing because the music is familiar and fun, but not distracting. (I find myself wanting to sing along a little too often when lyrics are present!)  



  1. Seems like a good playlist for my students when they write!

  2. Interesting! Thanks for your thoughts and playlist.

  3. It's wild how one new interest (Bridgerton) can bleed into other areas (music). Isn't it??
