March 2021 - We are back to our core classical theme with a virtual orchestra playing Beethoven's Symphony No7, 2nd movement, Allegretto.
Its a bit longer than the usual 5 minute snippet. It may not be the best performance musically speaking, but I hope you can enjoy seeing it all virtually, and watching each instrument highlighted as they play their part. Beethoven's Symphony No 7 has been used in films such as ‘The King's Speech’ and has inspired other composers and musicians. You can find an interesting article about the symphony on the website for WRTI, a member- supported public radio station. (https://www.wrti.org/post/why-beethovens-allegretto-so-completely-captivating).
To see the video click the link https://youtu.be/2i3GXyqwz9k (Beethoven's 7th, second movement).

February 2021's offering is somewhat lighter than usual and other U3A members may appreciate it.

First item is a lockdown version of 'You'll Never Walk Alone' from the 1945 Rogers and Hammerstein show 'Carousel.'The Virtual Choir & Orchestra brought together 300 performers spread over 15 countries.
The second short piece is a virtual street orchestra rendition from Bizet's 'Carmen'. Click the link and, hopefully, enjoy.

You\'ll never walk alone & Carmen

January 2021's musical treat is another virtual orchestra item. A performance of 'Nimrod' from the Enigma Variations by Edward Elgar.
It seems most of these virtual items remain copyright free which makes uploading to youtube less of a problem.
Click the link and a Happy New Year to all.
