Click the link for our 'Play and Connect' - William Tell video with Gippsland Symphony Orchestra musicians.
Musicians from Gippsland Symphony Orchestra joined our Youth(ful) Orchestra for some rehearsals and production of a 'concert' video under the leadership of David Williams, OAM, Artistic Director of GSO.
We were also joined by some East Gippsland Symphonia, East Gippsland Brass and other community musicians. There was lots of cross-age good humour, mentoring and sharing of both IT and musical skills.
We all recorded ourselves playing our parts, sometimes once, twice or more times !! And here is our finished product. (Click link above)
