Thank you to the musicians who joined us for our first online session last month. It was lovely to see you all again after all of these months!

You might remember that at the end of the rehearsal, Peter set some of the Symphony Orchestra players a challenge to play the piece all by themselves using double stops. We’re going to make the challenges a feature of every session, but there will be a few choices so that you can pick the one that you think suits you best!

 

Challenge No. 1

Option 1:

Learn the double stopped version of the Nintendo Wii theme and submit a recording/video of yourself playing it to stpaulsye@gmail.com before the next rehearsal (Saturday 7th November). The sheet music for this was emailed out last month.

Option 2:

Learn the double stopped version of the Nintendo Wii theme and complete the arrangement. Submit a recording/video of yourself playing it to stpaulsye@gmail.com before the next rehearsal (Saturday 7th November). 

Option 3:

Design a Wii Mii-style avatar of yourself (like the conductor one Peter had on the screen in the last session). This could incorporate your instrument or could be representing your interests and personality in a different way. Drawings would be lovely, or if you have the means and would prefer to do this using software, that is also fine. Please send us your avatars by Monday 9th November if you would like us to incorporate them in our video recordings and share your work on our website/social media accounts.

Our conductors will reveal the next set of challenges at our session on 7th November. We will also publish them on the website once they have been revealed so that you can still get involved if you aren’t at the next session.
