One of my major responsibilities as Vice President of the Stanford Symphony Orchestra Committee is managing marketing efforts. Through the SSO website and Facebook page, I present fun facts, sneak peeks, and reminders about upcoming concerts to cultivate a positive image of the SSO.
This quarter, I decided to end the year with a video montage of the Stanford Symphony Orchestra’s Autumn Quarter for the 2015-2016 season. At first, I tried to fit the images to Finlandia, a rousing piece of music we performed for the final Sibelius concert. However, the vivacious spirit of Finlandia wasn’t fitting with the image I had in mind – a tranquil, relaxing end-of-year video that creates a feeling of nostalgia for current musicians and listeners alike. The music I decided on is actually from a television show, Steven Universe, which is known for its amazing use of music as a complement to the thematic material in the series.
You can watch the video for yourself below. What feelings does it stir inside you?
