A little levity for April 1st!
Yes, there are violins in an orchestra and, well, they can be found playing video game music! Certainly, video games have sound tracks. And there really was a Video Game Music Concert!
The Tapiola Sinfonietta Orchestra played at the Slush technology conference in Helsinki, Finland, in 2015. The concert included nine famous themes from popular video games such as Angry Birds, Clash of Clans, Super Stardust, and Boom Beach.
To be enticing, video games must have good music. Often the music makes the game more exciting, helping the players to get emotionally invested. Some of the tunes even become part of the popular culture.
Yle, the Finnish public broadcaster, posted a series of videos from the conference.

Move over Star Wars soundtrack!
