Orchestra stays home
Just a little bit of socially distant music from my orchestra

We had a concert scheduled last weekend. Obviously it didn't happen, so we decided to throw this together instead. It's the very end of Beethoven's 5th, just the last minute or so. I'm really happy about how it turned out and how many musicians were able to play in it, considering that we did it on short notice -- we had about two-thirds of the orchestra participating.

The music starts somewhere around 0:50. Where I appear:

1:16 to 1:19 - bottom right
1:21 to 1:24 - bottom left
1:29 to end - bottom row, immediately left of the basses

Very nice. I'm right in the middle of pulling a similar video together for my community orchestra group. We've done the last part of Rossini's Barber of Seville overture,  though it won't sound as polished as that as we're a no-audition open access orchestra. It keeps everybody practising though!

The amount of work involved is unbelievable - it's given me even more respect for Pierre when he does the group projects. I'll post it here once it's published.

Looking forward to seeing it!

I've put together a group project before, with just 7 people, and it was a ton of work. Probably didn't help that I was editing video on an old computer. I've gotten a new laptop since then, so might try it again and see if it's any easier. Camellia Symphony is fortunate in that a member of the orchestra is a full-time recording engineer, and he took the lead on this project and put it all together. Even so, it took him several days to produce the video.

Oh man @AndrewH - yup - done a few virtual projects - 2 players - well, that's easy-peasy - but the largest I ever did was a group of 6 ( with 12 submitted audio parts in total ) - and I was on the verge of insanity by the time I mixed them as best I could....  Still, it was indeed a lot of fun for all concerned !  Love it !  [ Actually, what was driving me insane was the ticking clock in the kitchen, tick, tick, tick, tick - ALL I COULD HEAR WAS "You Are My Sunshine" - I have never been the same since....   I jest not....  Even writing about this little project brings me out in a cold sweat... ]

And, by the way, thanks again to all involved !
