The Late Show is going big and epic for the final presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

After live streaming an all-kitten focus group for the vice presidential debate, Stephen Colbert’s outfit will live-stream an improvised score to pair Wednesday night’s showdown in Las Vegas, which is tabbed as “the final debate — possibly ever.”

Providing the musical accompaniment for the Facebook Live event — aka #RequiemForADebate — is PUBLIQartet. The 6-year-old group has garnered acclaim for playing both standard compositions and pushing stylistic boundaries with their noted improvisational skills and will be the Quartet-In-Residence at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art for the 2016-17 season.

See a teaser below. The debate and complementary score begin at 9 p.m. ET. The Late Show airs live after the debate on CBS at 11:35 p.m. ET.
