I thought I'd program a short online concert of some of my more popular selections today.
Up first is the Cleveland School of Arts Orchestra performing Gauntlet. They do a lot of tuning and warming up (and it certainly pays off), but if you're interested in getting to the good stuff, skip ahead to the 1:45 mark.
Nice job! I especially like what they did with the "hard part" (mm. 56 - 80).
Up next is the Shaw Middle School Orchestra performing Zydeco Two-Step:
Excellent! The keyboard player did a great job.
Our final group is the Traverse City Symphony Strings - a civic orchestra - performing the heck out of Agincourt.
"Out of This World" is certainly an apt description of this group! They're a small ensemble, but they play with all the ferocity and musicianship of a group three times their size. I was also blown away by the production of this video - the multiple angles and great editing do the ensemble justice. Here's my favorite shot:
"Energy" at the end! A well-marked part is a joy for a composer to see.
