Amid the ongoing lockdown, members of the National Orchestra of France found a chance to escape their own confinement and in a virtual reunion of sorts found an interesting way to entertain music lovers around the world.
Sharing a heartwarming performance while being confined at home, members of the Orchestra recorded themselves playing “Bolero” by Maurice Ravel, one of the world’s best-known pieces of classical music, and then collectively presented a show online.
