BYSO musicians are invited to participate in the ‘Greater Than’ Project (Brian Balmages, composer) – a virtual orchestra collaboration between 5th through 12th grade students from Bellevue School District, and our very own BYSO ensembles! Participation information is currently available on the conductor’s notes pages of Cadet String Orchestra, Sinfonia, and Youth Symphony.
What is a virtual orchestra? A virtual orchestra is an ensemble that is put together from the comfort and safety of home. Musicians record their parts using whatever technology is available and then send their parts to their teachers. The teachers then edit and arrange all the recordings and put them together to create an orchestra! Students can choose to submit either video or audio recordings.
The first set of recordings are due this Friday, May 29. Contact your conductor with any questions.
