"Viva La Vida" was released by Coldplay as a single in 2008 to immediate critical and commercial success. It went on to become the band's first number one US and UK single, and it won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year in 2009. With its catchy string hook and upbeat melody, it's no wonder that this song is now a ubiquitous request -- so you can't go wrong with having it in your gig books! This arrangement was originally commissioned for a wedding cocktail hour, but it's sure to be requested for wedding ceremonies and receptions, and will also be great for parties, corporate events, solo & ensemble contests and any other occasion in need of some good vibes. This arrangement for violin and cello duet captures the soul of the original song with its lyrical melody lines, dynamic variations,and driving beat, for a chart that's just as much fun to play as it is to listen to! This is an intermediate level arrangement that will be easily learnable for students and sightreadable for professionals -- there are a few tricky rhythms, but both parts stay in first position throughout.

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