We invite youth and adults from anywhere in the Universe to participate our ONLINE orchestra, designed to bring the beauty of performance to audiences worldwide. Since this is a learning orchestra, there are no auditions. Now in our 2nd season, students are finding it is fun to play in an orchestra with students for all around the world.
Depending on enrollment, the orchestra can be divided into two groups; Orchestra A for beginners, and Orchestra B for more experienced players.
To participate, members will need:
– a computer with a decent microphone
– a webcam for rehearsal participation
– a computer able to run Zoom
– Commitment to daily practice and a few group rehearsals.
– at least 1 year of experience playing your instrument for Orchestra A
– 2 or more years experience for Orchestra B
– Adult orchestra is for players 20 and older.
Players will record their part for concerts using Soundtrap and the conductor will combine them into a final concert piece. The recording will be broadcast for family members.
The suggested donation cost to participate each concert cycle is $50 per student for Enlightened Audio students, and $75 per student for those from outside the school. This will help cover buying sheet music, and rehearsals. A concert cycle is 4 months.
