Abstract / Summary

The Online Orchestra Scalability Study aimed to establish the scalability of Online Orchestra, and provide an evidence base that would help inform future investment.

In collaboration with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (BSO), we co-designed a workshop, delivered online on 10th November 2016, to test the feasibility of the BSO to augment its music education programme by delivering content online, thereby increasing its geographical reach to more distant locations.

The workshop involved BSO musicians, located at the BSO headquarters in Poole, delivering an online workshop to a string quartet of four pupils, located in Jewell Academy, Bournemouth. The workshop was facilitated by Online Orchestra technology, and involved two parts. In part one, the string quartet performed an extract from Mozart’s Quartet in D minor, K421; BSO musicians then provided a 20-minute coaching session on the performance, in which they worked with the children to improve their performance. In part two, all musicians performed together, led by the Online Orchestra conductor. Musicians performed a specially-commissioned work written by Jim Aitchison (Variations on 3 Modes); this performance was rehearsed by the conductor over a 20-minute period.
