What will get you over 500,000 views? Ask TorQ Percussion
Someone said of the percussion piece Stinkin' Garbage, by E.Argenziano: "This piece ROCK!!! Every percussion ensemble should play this piece at least once."
So, Prologue's own TorQ Percussion Quarter did!
And they posted it on YouTube.
And it got them over 564,560 views! (as of June 18, 2015)
Here's TorQ Percussion's version of the piece on YouTube!
It appears that offering their own take on a popular piece learned by students in the music class gave TorQ great visibility. It is easier for the general public to appreciate how good artists are when the they are performing a piece they already know.
No need to include it in your show. Just having fun with it on YouTube could do the trick.
