In my non-working time I’m a musician – playing tuba in a few local orchestras and wind bands, and piano for myself in my room. Of course playing together in groups has not been possible for several months now, but one of Bristol’s amateur orchestras – Brunel Sinfonia – has been able to organise lockdown projects bringing us together virtually to play some pieces you can see on YouTube. Here are links to a few of these videos.
Love Actually, Craig Armstrong (arr. Tina Mehta)
Danse Macabre, Camille Saint-Saëns
Theme from ET, John Williams
There are some other videos on the Brunel Sinfonia YouTube page – go and have a look to see Elgar’s Serenade for Strings and Nimrod from the Enigma Variations – you won’t see me in either of those, but there are plans afoot for more lockdown projects in the near future.
