A Very Strathy
Following the success of our online concert earlier this year, we thought we might produce a Christmas Concert featuring artists, schools & teachers who contributed to StrathFest. Since it seems unlikely that live performances will be permitted anytime soon, we though we would create another film to be uploaded to YouTube for everyone to view and enjoy.
If you are interested in performing as an individual, a duo, a family group or a school class, we would love to hear from you.
You could play solo, or with a vocalist, or you could submit a dance, sketch or poem.
Here are some suggestions of music -
LeRoy Anderson's Sleigh Ride
Walking in a Winter Wonderland
Merry Christmas Everybody
I Wish it Could be Christmas Everyday
It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year
All I Want for Christmas is You
or a Christmas Carol or anything with a seasonal theme
Please note the following songs have already been selected -
The Twelve Days of Christmas
We Wish You a Merry Christmas (Gaelic version)
Carol of the Bells
Ding Dong Merrily on High
Mary's Boy Child
Frosty the Snowman
- so please don't select them as your chosen piece, as we only want one version of every song.
If you think you might be interested, please email Mary-Ann and let her know which piece you wish to perform - email@example.com.
The deadline for submitting your performance is 22 November 2020.
We then expect to have the video uploaded by the 10 December.
We would come and video your performance for you at either your school or home or outdoors (whatever the current guidelines allow),
or we can lend you our iPad Pro.
(please note we had some issues with the videos submitted by performers last time, what with differing file types, variations in quality, and a corrupted file, this caused us some problems, so this time we'd like to record them all on the same device).
If you need a musical accompaniment, this can be arranged, just let Mary-Ann know.
We think this is an opportunity to boost everyone's spirits in this difficult time, and hope you will join in!
