Orchestra Students Featured on KNKX

Northwest School Upper School orchestra students are currently featured on NPR affiliate 88.5 KNKX. The segment about Northwest School’s Virtual Orchestra Project aired the morning of May 29 and can be streamed online here.

The Virtual Orchestra Project connects Northwest School orchestra students with other music students from six different schools on five continents. All year, the students have been sending each other virtual correspondences and rehearsing the same piece of music: a tango by Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla.

The culmination of the year-long project will be a video presentation featuring all the schools, with the Northwest School orchestra playing live to accompany the video. The performance will take place on May 30, at 7:00 pm, at Plymouth Church.
