The Google Symphony Orchestra!

One of the unexpected pleasures of working at Google has been the ability to make music with my coworkers. I’ve assisted the group since they were incarnated back in May 2016 and watched it grow from a small chamber orchestra with about 30 musicians, to a full fledged ensemble. I’ll hope to flush this page out a bit more in the future but for now, here’s a nice photo from our May 4th, Star Wars outdoor concert. (As in May the 4th be with you!) There are also some videos on YouTube though the audio quality is not that great. So far the Google Orchestra has performed six concerts to sold out crowds of co-workers.

The Google Orchestra performs in the central courtyard of the Mountain View Headquarters.

Also here’s a nice recording from our holiday concert. It includes the gWhip – a percussion instrument I made for the occasion.
