It Don’t Mean a Thing
For our first video project, we are putting together a virtual performance of It Don’t Mean a Thing with all musicians and singers, including students, staff, and alumni of the University, and local community musicians from Reading and surrounding areas. All music, backing tracks, and demonstration tracks are available on Google Classroom and we will be holding ensemble tutorials listed above to work on the artistic and technical challenges of putting together this track. If this project proves popular, we are hoping to be able to release further video projects for ensembles in the future.
