I can't say enough about the Northeast String Orchestra   I could do a blog per day for the next week about them.   I'm about to take you there with audio and photos, because this is REAL talent, folks, and I want to tell the world about them.

This was a two day project with some amazing kids of all ages.  Director John Burmeister and faculty member Will Hayes do a fantastic job there and made this such a smooth process.  We tried to actually create a jingle to explain the program to you folks.  Here was the process..

First they wrote some clever lyrics to a very familiar piece of classical music ("A Little Night Music", by Mozart) . Then we did this..

Step 1. Record the kids playing the music part.

Step 2. Have the kids listen back  to what they played and "overdub" their voices in time to the music -similar to what is done in professional recording studios (multitrack recording)

Step 3. Mr Burmeister did a voiceover in the middle portion before the kids came back with a singing website address.

Would you like to hear the final product?  Of COURSE!
