For fall 2020, FSI is going to have an innovative and evolving ensemble class.  Students will have the option of having rehearsals outside when the weather permits.   Students are going to be involved in various multimedia and video projects.   They will record video of their ensemble piece parts at home. These parts will be electronically mixed with recordings of other students to create  virtual performances.   This can be done with small groups of 2 or 3 people and with the entire ensemble.  We also plan to have students record their ensemble parts at their favorite outdoor locations in Frederick County.  The on location video will also be mixed together to create a virtual performances and music videos.
