The music of Green Day and the Broadway musical stage; an unlikely pairing if there ever was one. But the energy and infectiousness of Green Dayâ€™s songs translate from the arena stage to the Broadway stage without question. This string orchestra arrangement of a medley of five songs from American Idiot captures the pathos, the pomp, and the punk spirit of Green Day and includes detailed instructions to help capture the style.
