Online Orchestra Original Summer 2021
The Online Orchestra was a hit over the summer as we attempted something truly unique as our final remote project before the orchestras got back together in the new autumn term.
We wanted everyone's musical input to create an inspiring and original piece of music which looked forward to the prospect of getting back together again both musically and socially.
The project was open to absolutely everyone regardless of instrument, level or experience. Everyone had something to say and we loved hearing your musical voice in this new work.
The finished performance can be found below and via our YouTube channel.
