Music is a way that brings us all together. We truly believe that music is so powerful, it can make us all come together and be united. That is what The Richard Ely Trust Online Orchestra is about. At this very difficult time, where it is not physically possible to perform and share music together, we invite you to create something together from our homes. Young musicians coming together from across the south to produce music together.
The idea is simple: we will upload parts for specific pieces orchestrated for singers and instrumentalists. You video yourself playing the part that suits you most, send it in and then we will collate all the videos to make our online orchestra.
Imagine – Richard Ely Trust Online Orchestra
Some of the students sponsored by the Richard Ely Trust took part in their first online orchestra. Having never played as an ensemble before and 2 weeks to learn the first piece, we present to you our rendition of John Lennon’s song, ‘Imagine’.This project is about young musicians coming together and to create wonderful music to share.We hope to launch our second piece soon and include former musicians of the trust.
