Please rename your file to –
e.g Jamie Wright – Violin 1
Please note we will use file names to provide names for the credits. (see “How will my file be used”)

What should I wear?

21C Request: “No specific preference but it would be great to try to root the players visually to their country of origin, through their clothes or backgrounds of the videos, so that it helps us show the range and breadth of the GO orchestra. I leave it to the players’ discretion how they can best achieve that, whenever possible.”
