With the aim of being as inclusive as possible, and to connect
even with those musicians who are not in residence on
campus during Fall Quarter 2020 the UC Davis Symphony Orchestra
will work (remotely) on producing a virtual performance video
with all members safely performing from their homes.
All members of the UC Davis community (regardless of their
major) who play an orchestral instrument are invited to
participate.They need to register for MUS 141 using this CRN:
* NO AUDITION IS REQUIRED *
In order to participate, register for the course and submit an
application to the drop folder below. We look forward to
creating a beautiful project with you!
Class format: there will be occasional Zoom meetings (Tuesdays
at 8:00 pm) to guide the musicians and offer them insights and
coachings with experienced musicians about how to make the most
of this recording experience. Those who cannot attend Tuesdays
at 8pm will still receive a recording of these zoom meetings.
We will have about four weeks to prepare and practice, and a
few more weeks for each musician to submit their actual
recording (which will be done playing with a click track that
will be provided). At the end of the quarter we will all have a
beautiful virtual performance video to share with the world.
