The Virtual Orchestra is on its way

This summer, the UK united in a celebration of amateur music making. Up and down the country, you dusted off old instruments - or learned them from scratch - and played the Toreador Song.

Solo and in groups, in bedrooms, church halls and even on beaches, you united and formed the BBC’s first Virtual Orchestra which will be part of the Last Night of the Proms Celebrations on Saturday September 10.

A small selection of those of you who joined the Orchestra can be seen below together with your conductor Marin Alsop and ambassador David Baddiel.

The Virtual Orchestra film will be shown at Proms in the Parks across the UK and will be available on iPlayer and this website from 3pm on Saturday September 10. It will form part of the Last Night of the Proms celebrations on BBC Two.

Thank you.
