Lancaster's Haffner Orchestra records virtual concert for YouTube
Lancaster’s symphony orchestra has made another recording – of a free (three minute) concert.
The Haffner Orchestra, which normally performs three times a year in Lancaster and can have up to 70 players on the stage, has made a recording of Nimrod, from Elgar’s Enigma Variations.
Here you can see many well-known faces, local players, and see the conductor Jonny Lo, who – being in his own home away from the musicians – had to pretend to conduct.
Everyone recorded individually at home.

Nimrod is regarded as one of the most moving pieces of orchestral music.
