Lasallian Youth Orchestra: Redefining Music Production and Entertainment with Quaran-TUNES
With the ongoing pandemic, the Lasallian Youth Orchestra (LYO) organized a three-episode production called “Quaran-TUNES” that gives their audience a sense of comfort and break from the stress of the uncertain times.
Despite its online set-up, LYO once again redefines what it means to produce music and entertainment. They were able to produce a quality online production at the comfort of their homes since they were able to effectively utilize its entire managing team—marketing, publicity, and productions. Every detail of their minor production was meticulously planned from its conceptualization down to video editing technicalities and its sound mastering. This can be observed through smooth transitions and pleasing colors that were established. Surely, this marks another success and milestone for LYO.
To add on that, Quran-TUNES is a fundraising event for the Artists’ Welfare Project Inc. (AWPI), a SEC-certified NGO that gathers and supports different aspiring Filipino student artists. Truly, music continues to act as a unifying factor to both organizations for they share a similar passion for music.
A myriad set of pieces performed in the previous episodes contained the themes: the living room which featured the Rhythms sections and the dining room, with the Winds section; alongside other Culture and Arts Groups of DLSU, that collaborated with them.
Indeed, LYO truly gave us outstanding online performances in the previous episodes. These offered us a space for relaxation and leisure— a break from all of the chaos that’s happening amidst the pandemic. Eventually, Quaran-TUNES served as a reminder that we need to take a break and take things one day at a time.
So don’t forget to mark your calendars! The last episode featuring the Strings section, in collaboration with DLSU Chorale, will premiere on LYO’s Youtube channel and Facebook page at 6PM on Friday, June 18.
