VIDEO: Brevard Symphony Orchestra Presents Virtual Performance of Excerpt From Gustav Holst's 'The Planets'
On Saturday, May 30, 2020, the Brevard Symphony Orchestra's (BSO) "virtual" performance of an excerpt from Jupiter from Gustav Holst's The Planets made its online premiere. Fifty-five BSO musicians and BSO Music Director Christopher Confessore recorded their individual parts in their homes and uploaded the files to Video Producer and Engineer Andres Roca, who spent more than fifty hours editing the individual videos and audio together to create a stunning and emotional virtual performance. The BSO is the first professional orchestra in Central Florida to present a virtual orchestra performance. This project is part of the orchestra's online audience engagement effort. Additional projects are planned in the coming weeks.
