Play Together Apart
After over two months of pandemic isolation the Homer youth orchestra met outside to make music together in a safe, physically distanced perfect circle. Drone footage of this event and later individual student recordings made with play along click tracks were engineered into a video collage. A snapshot of Homer youth in the time of covid.
