String students and teachers from the Count Basie Center for the Arts’ Monmouth Conservatory of Music gathered last weekend to play the theme for the hugely popular HBO series, “Game of Thrones,” on their instruments. You can watch the performance, below.
The theme was written by German composer Ramin Djawadi, who won an Emmy last year for his music to the “Game of Thrones” episode, “The Dragon and the Wolf.”
The musicians in the video below include Monmouth Conservatory of Music faculty members Leo Soeda (cello) and Bettina Forbes (violin) as well as violin students Mèkel Cleare, Maximiliano Huerta and Jack Santoro; viola student Rayan R. Jawa; and cello students Victor Fuentes, Erin Kraus, Sydney Roth, Mihika R. Jawa, Galia Montoya and David Fiorito.
The final “Game of Thrones” episodes airs on HBO, May 19 at 9 p.m.
