Qatar’s Philharmonic Orchestra Goes Virtual

Qatar’s Philharmonic Orchestra, an organization under the Qatar Foundation umbrella, performed a virtual performance to entertain those currently housed indoors to limit the spread of the Coronavirus and to encourage others to do the same. The orchestra members, from the comfort of their living room, performed “the second movement from Antonin Dvorak’s Symphony No.9 (From The New World), which was adapted into a song called Goin’ Home, in their living rooms.”

The Executive Director of the Orchestra, Kurt Meister, stated that “we wanted to show people that, despite the current situation, the orchestra is still working, still rehearsing, and still preparing for the time when we can all come together again.”
