London Film Music Orchestra comes to the Old Royal Naval College
Sat 7 Nov 20
Watch this wonderful collaboration with the London Film Music Orchestra below, with an introduction from artistic director Rossi Dusheva.
The past few months have been very difficult for the London Film Music Orchestra since we have had no clarity on when we can perform LIVE and meet our audiences again. Unfortunately we are not able to organise concerts in front of socially-distanced audiences as revenue from limited-seat audiences would simply not be enough for us to cover our expenses. Times are difficult for all performing arts…
However, we have kept our inspirations, ideas, and hopes alive during lockdown, and the months afterwards, and worked very hard on an exciting new project: our first virtual world tour.
We came up with the idea immediately after the lockdown in March: to combine concert venues in Europe, creating a single virtual concert experience. As far as we could tell no other musical organisation had attempted this sort of event during the lockdown. Could we do it…? We thought it was worth a try – and so we started planning.
We were thrilled to host this virtual concert from the amazing premises of the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London. After countless hours of work over the summer right through the London heatwave in July; exchanging dozens of video files with our artists and videographer; dealing with a damaged hard drive resulting in the loss of all our project files; and after trying hard to retrieve those files with no success, we were delighted to have the project ready on time!
All of the artists featured in this project volunteered their time and talents, and these spectacular venues opened their doors to welcome us free of charge. We are proud to have created a beautiful musical tale, which we are delighted to share with you.
