BROOME COUNTY MUSIC EDUCATORS’ ASSOCIATION AND BINGHAMTON COMMUNITY ORCHESTRA TO COLLABORATE ON “MUSIC OUTSIDE THE BOX”

Faced with a pandemic and stoppage of in-person ensembles, the BCO helped over 60 high school musicians share new music live over the internet. From schools across Broome County, NY, they played and learned together in a weekend virtual festival called Music Outside the Box. The project featured live online ensemble performances and exploration of vocal technique through graphic scores.
