Salford Symphony recorded light orchestral music at the BBC Studio 7 on 26th June 2011, as part of Radio 3's Light Fantastic festival.
Our contribution to the festival included:
Suite of English Folk-Dances - Ernest Tomlinson
Coronation Scot - Vivian Ellis*
Butterflies in the Rain - Sherman Myers (broadcast on Radio 3 on Wednesday 29th June 2011)*
We also recorded our contribution to the "Archers" Theme tune (Arthur Wood's Barwick Green) as part of Radio 3's Light Fantastic 'mega-mix' performance.
Barwick Green - Salford Symphony*
This was a project where Radio 3 invited a number of amateur orchestras to record the Archers theme. Following this, each recording was mixed with the contributions from other orchestras, into a "mega-mix".
