Virtual Concert

Sanae Kodaira Hendy, Band Manager

The American University Symphony Orchestra and Symphonic Band continue their journeys in asynchronously pre-recorded "virtual ensemble" pieces in this program of varied repertoire. All pieces are recorded one part at a time by each musician and then compiled in audio software to sound as the full ensemble. The results are quite impressive! Join us as we present and talk about our work.
