Social distancing and distance education didn’t stop the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts wind symphony from putting on a performance over the weekend.
A video posted on the school’s Twitter and YouTube pages on Saturday showed students performing “Down a Country Lane” by Aaron Copland via a videoconference. To put the piece together, players individually recorded their parts to a conducting track sent by associate director of bands John Seaton.
The piece was not rehearsed or sight-read prior to school closures, according to the school’s post.
