National Youth Orchestra bassoonists rock (and pop)


Hats off to the National Youth Orchestra bassoonists this year (and the organisation’s social media bod) for capturing and sharing this cracking arrangement of a Britney Spears ‘Toxic’. Packed full of energy. Funny too.

What really gets me is how this time a year ago there were so many organisations pumping out lockdown videos consisting of isolated musicians. Back then we were marvelling at their isolated togetherness. A year later, we’re marvelling at them in real life.

Uplifting stuff. And there’s more to come, apparently.
