Yale's Low Strung performs at TEDxYale 2015
September 10, 2020

Low Strung is a group of classically trained cellists from Yale University who make up the largest all-cello all-rock band in the world. The group transforms classics of the rock, pop, metal, and blues genres into pieces designed exclusively for the cello. The final product is something that cannot be found anywhere else: music that bursts with the excitement of rock but is executed with the thundering bass and butter-smooth treble of the cello.
