Carol of the Bells
Last December, we had an idea to arrange a piece for our teaching studio, S&S String Studio, and put together a video project as a fun way for us to collaborate with our students virtually that season. We then had the thought that we could open this project up to our musical colleagues and friends from around the world in case anyone was interested. Turns out that two weeks, a couple of sizable learning curves, and many sleepless nights later, we finally finished a 61 member ensemble international virtual video collaboration of our own arrangement of Carol of the Bells. This video includes performers of all ability levels from Seattle, Los Angeles, Kansas City, Chicago, Sioux City, Lincoln, Houston, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Italy, and Turkey!
In the spirit of the holidays, we've hidden four musical gifts for you to discover, so let us know which themes you recognize! Hint: they all coincidentally start with the letter "G".
