Cobweb Virtual Orchestra Encore

As our 1000+ virtual audience members are demanding an encore and players seem up for another performance, we’ve decided to go ahead with an encore.

It’s a similar idea to last time – a lighthearted short piece. This time it’s an arrangement of a South American folk dance, which starts slowly and gets faster and faster, then finishes with a flourish.  You’ll be pleased to know that all the parts are quite easy, so don’t rule yourself out because you think you won’t be able to manage.

One of the great advantages of these virtual performances is that players don’t have to be in the same place at the same time and our ‘Barber  of Seville’ recording had participants from Australia and South Africa, so if you know anyone who’d like to join the Cobweb Orchestra from afar, please send them the enrolment form.

Technical requirements:

Please make sure before enrolling that you have the required technology to take part:

– A broadband internet connection
– Either a printer or a tablet computer or Ipad for the music
– A device that can play a YouTube video with an earpiece or headphones for the audio (smart phone, tablet, laptop etc)
– A (separate) device that can record sound and video and produce a computer file from it (smart phone, tablet, laptop, video camera etc) and upload it to the internet”

Enrolment is open to everybody, not just those who took part last time, and places will be allocated on a desk by desk “first come” basis. You can do this by clicking the link here.

Sign the agreement allowing the publication of your video and audio performance as part of the overall project.
