My story

[p]Yorkshire Wind Orchestra is 25 years old! [url=https://www.yorkshirewinds.co.uk]https://www.yorkshirewinds.co.uk[/url] [/p][p]We can't perform our celebratory concert on 16th May so we're aiming to raise £625 (£25 x 25 years) by then instead. Written, recorded and produced in isolation, we're a little bit proud to reveal our take on the distance recording phenomenon. Wash your hands, and let us entertain you (for a minute).[/p][p]Please help us reach our goal by sharing, and (if you're able) getting us going with our target. You can also watch and share directly from youtube:[/p][p][url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkDgW2-xV2k&fbclid=IwAR1deLL09NUCk2AHr9L0DH4B23SaQpuJ5ZuqmGVnGuSdPnhQpH_KRpJOQKw]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkDgW2-xV2k[/url][/p][p]The sheet musical used in our virtual performance is available for wind orchestra or symphony orchestra in exchange for a charity donation. Get in touch via yorkshirewinds.ywo@gmail.com to find out more. [/p][p]Now you can find out how we made it too. Watch our "Making Of" to see how it was done: [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yz7fMUpcLpk&t=58s]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yz7fMUpcLpk&t=58s[/url][/p]
