41 Strings by Nick Zinner

On May 11th, Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) led an orchestral ensemble of 41 strings—violins, violas, cellos, electric and acoustic guitars, upright bass, electric bass, and some drums and synths thrown in for good measure—in a performance celebrating the 41st anniversary of Earth Day.

The evening was put on by Loomstate, an organic clothing brand that organized a performance of 40 Drummers for last year’s Earth Day.

Zinner not only curated the evening but also composed original music for the occasion, in collaboration with Hisham Akira Bharoocha and Ben Vida of Soft Circle.
