Community Orchestra: All Together Now

Registration for All Together Now has now closed.

This project is a fresh look at how we can grow our music making from our own homes to across the country. While it is still challenging for many of us to get out and about and meet in large groups, we have created a space to come All Together Now to play, share, create and learn.

What is it?

Well, it is a ‘digital orchestra’ of course! Expect twice monthly Zoom rehearsals, with Conductor Michael Repper, in which we will be working on a very special commission by Scottish composer Jay Capperauld. There will be sectional rehearsals with RSNO musicians and masterclasses and workshops too! We will be working together in sectional and mass rehearsals to keep each other motivated and practicing as well as brushing up our digital skills in order to build a huge recording wall at the end of the project!

The sessions are optional – you don’t need to attend each one – although we are sure that you won’t want to miss any once we get going!

Who is it for?

All Together Now is open to everyone, and we would like to encourage players from Grades 1 to 4 to come along and try it out. You must sign up to the project in order to receive the details for each Zoom session. We can’t wait to make music with you again!

When is it?

The Zoom sessions will take place every fortnight on Saturdays, starting on January 23rd, 2pm - 3.30pm

Rehearsals for the final recording will start in January 2021, and the project will finish in May 2021.

A full list of dates and sessions will be available when you sign up. The sessions are optional – you don’t need to attend each one – although we are sure that you won’t want to miss any once we get going!

To stay updated with the RSNO Community Orchestra and future projects, please check back here or follow us on social media.

Do I need fancy equipment?

Not really! You’ll need your instrument up and running in working order (better dust off that mouthpiece and clean those strings!)

You will need a device like a laptop, phone or iPad with internet in order to join in with the Zoom sessions. You will also need this device to record an audio or video recording of you playing your part of the final piece (as well as headphones). You won’t need any fancy software though – only what comes on your device.

If you would like to take part in this project but you don’t have access to a device capable of recording please contact engage@rsno.org.uk
