It’s A Whole New World for musicians and music groups in 2020, including the Moore Philharmonic Orchestra. A Whole New World, from Disney’s “Aladdin” will be one of the featured selections in the MPO’s first virtual performance.
The Moore Philharmonic resumed rehearsals in August with the string section, suspended rehearsals after losing the rehearsal space, and then resumed rehearsals again at the end of September. The group utilized temperature checks, masks, social distancing, and Zoom meetings to prepare for the performance.
This fall concert featuring the String Section of the MPO will be presented on YouTube. It will include classical selections as well as popular music and show tunes. It will start with the selection from “Aladdin”, as noted above, and conclude with a medley from “Hairspray.” The final song will be You Can’t Stop the Beat, reminding us that there will always be music in our lives, regardless of hardships we might face.
The concert will be available on YouTube at 6 p.m. on October 31 and will be available through November 21. The link to the concert is bit.ly/mpofall2020. More information about the Moore Philharmonic can be found at mporchestra.com. Please like them on Facebook; www.facebook.com/mporchestra
