The Self-Isolation Choir -The Messiah at Home Project
The Self-Isolation Choir was founded by Mark Strachan at the start of lockdown in March 2020. I was approached to help set up and lead an online Baroque Orchestra to accompany them in their quest to sing the entire work of Handel’s Messiah as an online performance.
Over the period of about a month I recorded the first and second violin parts of the Messiah on baroque violin. It was quite a strange experience doing this in isolation, but was really worthwhile and incredible to see it all come together.
The choir is going from strength to strength and now has over 4,000 members worldwide.
