Virtual Scratch Orchestra

Welcome to the homepage for the Virtual Scratch Orchestra!

For me, music is all about people! People uniting, people sharing and people listening. At a very difficult time, when it is not currently possible to be physically together to share and make music, I invite you to create something together from afar!

The concept is simple: I will upload parts for different pieces, you video yourself playing the part that suits you most, send it in and then we’ll collate all of the videos to make a Virtual Orchestra and I’ll play along too. All audio parts will be used in the final video, however it may not be possible to include all video appearances.

Our Christmas piece will be Sleigh Ride by Leroy Anderson. Written in 1948 by Leroy Anderson and recorded by The Ronnettes, Ella Fitzgerald and Bing Crosby, this piece is a firm Christmas favourite and will be great fun for us all to play together. 

The deadline for submissions has now passed. Stay tuned for more details on the release of the completed video!
