Hey guys, I've been watching the Proms this year and the BBC are really pushing to make it more accessible to everyone this year.

 

They are wanting to create a virtual orchestra (presumably similar to Fiddlerman's group project) to play Bizet's Chanson du Toreador. I don't know if this has been posted before but it might be fun to try out? Even if you don't officially take part, it's still a good song to learn. :)

Also the David Bowie Prom is on tomorrow night, hopefully it will be spectacular.

I already submitted my video for that, though I did it on flute as I didn't feel I could do even the basic violin part justice (staccato - are they serious?!! lol).

Well worth a punt if you can manage it though.

Sounds like a great project. :)
