"Higher" - a bluesy, boozy love song reminiscent of a 1920's speakeasy ballad - is an emotional two-minute song written for Rihanna's eighth studio album "Anti" that quickly became a fan and critical favorite. This arrangement for two-violin and cello trio was originally commissioned for a wedding ceremony, with the first violin part duplicating Rihanna's smoky vocal line and the second violin alternating between harmony, countermelody, and the distant echoey violin line of the original. (Don't worry, this version has an added repeat if you'd like it to be more than two minutes long!) Great for weddings, receptions, cocktail hours, events, or any other occasion that needs some pop-soul flair. Rated advanced for tricky rhythms in the violin parts - this will be sightreadable for professionals, but students might need to take a minute and work some things out!

Sarah "Cellobat" Chaffee earned her bachelor's degree in cello performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music and is now based in Las Vegas.
