VC Artist Aizuri Quartet's "Aizuri Kids" — Episode 5
Check out this this web series for children uses the string quartet as a catalyst for creative learning
In this fifth episode, VC Artist Aizuri Quartet asks: "How do music and food go together?"
"In the Aizuri Quartet, we layer our sounds and blend four instruments together to create one group sound," the group shared!
"That got us thinking, there are many foods that have layers — layers of different flavors that blend together. Food and music are great partners! It's like unlocking another way we can use our imagination, by connecting our ears to the sense of taste. How is the quartet sound related to a lasagna fresh out of the oven? Can we sound like a creamy vanilla pudding?"
