One of the most recognizable and critically acclaimed hits from Florence + The Machine's debut album, Lungs, the song "Dog Days Are Over" is a powerful anthem that has become a fan favorite over the years. This version for string quartet was originally commissioned for a wedding - and with its triumphant feel, beautiful layered harmonies, and driving beat, it's a great song not only for recessionals, but for cocktail hours, parties, corporate events, solo & ensemble contests or any other occasion that needs some British indie-rock flair! This arrangement maintains the emotional intensity, dynamic range, tempo fluctuations, and powerful pulse of the original and will definitely be fun to play. Rated advanced-intermediate for some double stops (mainly 6ths in V2 and 5ths in the cello part) and a lot of funky rhythms in the 1st violin vocal line - this will be learnable for students and sightreadable for professionals.

Sarah "Cellobat" Chaffee earned her bachelor's degree in cello performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music and is now based in Las Vegas. She currently performs with Aerosmith in their "Deuces Are Wild" residency at The Park MGM Theater on the Las Vegas Strip. Sarah is also the principal cellist in David Perrico's Pop Strings Orchestra, a 14-piece band that performs every Friday and Saturday at Caesars Palace, and she plays regularly for Premiere Wedding Music and Bella Electric Strings.
