Ashley Erling brings us “Eye on RI” featuring upcoming local events!
RI Philharmonic Youth Wind Ensemble- The Rhode Island Philharmonic Music School has crafted a unique way to connect the Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts community to live classical music. On Saturday, May 2, at 1:30 (rain date May 3), in neighborhoods all over the region, 72 Rhode Island Philharmonic Music School Youth Wind Ensembles students, ranging in age from 11 to 18, will take to their front yards to simultaneously play their individual parts of four pieces simultaneously to an accompanying backing track. Led by tuxedo-clad David Neves, conducting from his own front yard, the students will be recorded by their parents, and audio and video will be later merged in various configurations for presentation as online virtual concerts. If you see one, post a photo or video with the hashtags #RIPhilPlays and #RIPhilharmonic to become part of the fun.
