Like most other arts organisations Dumfries and Galloway Youth Orchestra has been unable to meet as a group since February. However we have tried to keep things going as best we can. We have recorded a virtual performance of Purcell's Rondeau. We have put on a virtual concert of young soloists. As a result of that virtual concert one of the young players won a masterclass with top cellist Su-a Lee. And we are organising another virtual performance of Bizet's Toreador's Song which we shall put on the website as soon as it is ready.
Meantime we are in contact with MSPs and Councillors to make sure that people with influence know that we are champing at the bit to get going properly as soon as it is safe! Watch this space for more information in future.
