Earth Orchestra – level 2

10-12-2020 07:00

197 musicians got together and they created an orchestra. Each musician was from a different country. The orchestra recorded a song called ’Together is Beautiful’.

The artists wanted to show that it was possible to cross physical and cultural borders and to make something special. In the end, they were all surprised how well it worked. They felt as one artist.

The project started three years ago and a famous composer George Fenton supervised it. Fenton came up with melodies and some of the musicians added their parts without a clear plan. They combined different styles and they used instruments that came from their home countries.

Difficult words: orchestra (a group of people who play together and they use different instruments), composer (a person who writes music), supervise (to watch somebody do something and to make sure that they do it right).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
