Amazing Grace performed by Wind Orchestra

Members of ESYO Wind Orchestra got together online with composer and bagpiper Jay Dawson to record the iconic song "Amazing Grace." arranged by composer Jay Dawson. This performance was featured at ESYO's Sounding Together Digital Festival on Thursday, June 11, 2020, and dedicated to healthcare heroes who continue risking their lives to save others. We were challenged to learn, but not in a classroom. We were challenged to perform, but not in a concert hall. ESYO will continue to #SoundTogether online and play through the pause. In March 2020, COVID-19 shuttered concert halls, postponed concerts, and closed schools across the country. When COVID-19 caused our community to shelter in place the young musicians at ESYO decided that the music would not stop. Undeterred by the Great Pause, ESYO transitioned its entire program to the virtual world, connecting through google meet and google classroom to continue learning and making music in new ways.
