Session 11

All Diary Entries Mayo Youth Orchestra

OK, it’s not essential to record a live orchestra for your soundtrack…but we did!

Such was the enthusiasm and dedication that all pupils came into school on a Saturday to record the Mayo Youth Orchestra. We had a wonderful hour listening to and recording the 37 member orchestra, an amazing sound in our modest-sized GP room. Pupils then tried out the instruments from the various sections of the orchestra and in turn, shared the secrets of animated film-making with the musicians, a powerful opportunity for shared expertise and a great motivator to get the film finished!
