Awhile back, in summer 2007, I performed in a major event, the 400th anniversery celebration of Jamestown, Virginia. For the event, they selected one music organization to perform in a mass 400 piece orchestra along with a 1607 person choir. I have searched along time for any videos, and now only came across our mid-day performances. I am working on getting any of the finale though, which IMHO is the best.
So I want to share these videos with you all, they arent mine however. The people in the blue shirts are the actual choir, and the large screen shows various shots of the orchestra itself.
God Bless America
Shenendoah (one of my favs)
Variations on a Shaker Melody
Semper Fidelis:Now, there were only 3 tubas out of 400 musicians, and at the trio, you can hear us CLEARLY making the runs, along with the trumpets (you can see the side of my face at 1:49 on the big screen rofl)
Ive contacted this youtube poster about possibly having video of the finale. We had played, in order, Olympic fanfare, Original score of the main theme of "Star Wars: A New Hope," Ending of the 1812 overture, and "The Stars and Stripes Forever," at night, with fireworks the whoooooooole time.
Here are some pics of the event as well:
