Lockdown Blues? Watch 80 RNCM students perform ELO’s Mr. Blue Sky
It’s been voted the happiest song of all time*, so what better way to brighten the first day of our second lockdown than by watching 80 young musicians perform ELO’s 1978 hit Mr. Blue Sky?
Featuring students from Manchester’s Royal Northern College of Music’s classical and popular music degree courses, this uplifting arrangement was created as part of the RNCM’s online performance programme.
Those involved received training in digital recording from professional session musicians and recorded their sections remotely in June 2020, during the UK’s first lockdown period.
