It’s been six weeks since the Florida Orchestra’s last performance, and it’ll be another few weeks, at least, before they return.

In the meantime, they just dropped a performance from their homes.

Forty-three musicians have united for a virtual performance of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4, released by the orchestra on Friday. Musicians recorded their parts in their homes, and pieced together by associate conductor Daniel Black and recording engineer John Zumwalt Stephan.

The video was the brainchild of music director Michael Francis and concertmaster and violinist Jeffrey Multer, and dedicated “to everyone who believes in the power of music.”
