In the spirit of rock ’n’ roll fun, we used the magic of Photoshop to include photos of our hard-working Berklee string quartet. In the absence of space for photos of our 12 singers, Elvis Costello remains in the honored central position. Pictured are, clockwise from lower left, Claudius Agrippa, violin; Louisa Byron, violin; Elvis Costello; Joshua Litton, viola; and Caitlin Thomas, cello.

Faculty from the Voice and String departments at Berklee College of Music perform contemporary solo songs cowritten by singer-songwriter Elvis Costello and the Brodsky Quartet.

The Juliet Letters, which features a mingling of rock and classical influences inspired by Romeo and Juliet, draws inspiration from the fact that the lovelorn and desperate continue to leave letters addressed to the imaginary Juliet Capulet on a stone wall in Verona, Italy, under the balcony at the purported site of Shakespeare’s play.
