New but "experienced" per say

Hello! I'm new to the site/group. I used to play the violin for years and loved it. My parents divorced and my mother stopped me from playing out of spite to my father. Dumb I know. However playing has continued to stay as a passion though I was unable to actually play.
Well it's been a number of years and I'm a grown functioning adult and I'm starting myself up again. I'm starting from scratch with the basics and all. And I've progressed pretty well. My goals are to play a number of songs I wanted to learn years ago.
Songs from the Lord of the Dance, TSO, and a number of gaming themes.
I'm happy to be here and excited to get to know everyone in this community as newbie as I currently am.

The violin

A violin is taken to hospital. The doctor examines her and says:
"There's nothing wrong with you. But you broke your bow. How did that happen?"
Violin: "I only remember the thunderous applause for the composer."
Doctor: "Do you remember his name?"
Violin: "No. I think he was on the first page of the sheet music."

Need suggestions?

I'm playing in a group of two violins and two violas (including myself) for solo ensemble. We're looking for a piece, and would like to do a modern song (we've looked at Titanium and Rather Be if that gives you an idea of what we want) but haven't been able to find anything that suits our skill level, which is about beginner to intermediate. Does anybody have suggestions or links to sheet music? Thanks!

Viola/Bass duet?

Would anyone happen to have any viola and bass duet pieces? Me and my friend are looking for something that is beginner-intermediate*, and the bass part does have something more than quarter notes. I'll also be okay with a Viola/Cello part, as long as it doesnt go below a low E. Thanks!

*We've been playing for about six months, and the hardest we've done is doing Moana songs (like 4 songs in one score). I'm sure we could also figure out a intermediate piece too.
