BOSTON – Members of the Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras (BYSO) recently recorded a virtual performance of the song Sleigh Ride.
“The holiday season is in the air and students across the Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras have been working diligently on festive projects to share the joy of classical music with our community. We’re thrilled to share this special production of Leroy Anderson’s Sleigh Ride featuring the young musicians of our Repertory Orchestra,” said a spokesperson.
The Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras is operating virtually with our 550 young students from throughout New England.
Though it is not easy making music from a distance, we are proud of the work our students do from afar and their dedication to creating music “together,” said spokesperson Erin Keegan Ianni. “While we look forward to a time where we can all enjoy music in person once again, we hope this production brings a little bit of holiday cheer to you and the community”
