Edsential musicians take part in first Virtual Christmas Concert
One hundred and forty young musicians took part in Edsential’s first ever Virtual Christmas Concert this year. Sadly, live music events are not currently allowed to take place. But this didn’t stop Edsential’s sixteen music ensembles, who came together to virtually produce a full concert programme to entertain audiences!
Alison Corten, Music Service Leader, said, “Everyone has worked so hard to produce this virtual event. Students have rehearsed at home, learning their parts online. Music tutors have added teaching online and video editing to their repertoire. We are all learning new skills to bring us through this challenging period.”
Alex Harper, who led the team bringing to concert together congratulated all the tutors saying, “You have all helped to make something special and memorable for young people and their families.”
Audience members have reacted warmly to this innovative form of presentation, one audience member commenting, “This is amazing! I can’t even imagine how long it must have taken to put all of this together. It’s worked really well as a virtual event.”
