And by “watch it” I mean this latest piece from the Doctor Who Fan Orchestra:
As he does each time, creator Stephen Willis outdoes himself with creative arranging and video effects. Participants get wild with costumes and settings. The music is gorgeous: composer, arranger, and performers are all to be commended.
It’s also a ridiculous amount of fun.
The tribute at the end of the piece is to an orchestra member who passed earlier this year. No group is immune to loss; a group this large, with this age range, even less so. We are grateful to Steve’s family for letting us know – he could have just vanished, as many do – and allowing us to acknowledge him. He played French horn and always wore a tux. His contributions will be missed.
Even insiders can’t say when the Orchestra will return, but if you follow Stephen’s youtube channel, you’ll be among the first to know.
