The F&M Orchestra and Symphonic Wind Ensemble have been divided into pods 4 to 11 performers, with 12 pods on campus and 2 remote pods.  Their performances this semester are recorded and have included almost 20 world premieres, and the remote ensembles have recorded performances virtually on a weekly basis, all world premieres.  The Common Hour concert concludes with a massive project of nearly 80 musicians performing Leroy Anderson’s Sleigh Ride virtually under the virtual direction of Brian Norcross, Senior Director of Instrumental Music and Conducting Studies!

This event was proposed by Brian Norcross.

To accommodate changes in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Common Hour in the Fall semester of 2020 will shift to becoming a virtual event broadcast live via Zoom and YouTube on Wednesdays from 1:30-2:30 p.m.
