A live performance video series has been launched by Hertfordshire Music Service to give young people a chance to showcase their talents on YouTube. #HMSOriginals is a music video series by Hertfordshire Music Service and the first series was filmed in a unique and historic location in Hertford, within the heart of the Council Chamber in County Hall. This is part of Hertfordshire Music Service’s commitment to improving lives through high-quality musical experiences and enabling young people, no matter their background or circumstances, to discover their unique musical voices.
Young people from Hertfordshire were invited to audition and the winners were supported by Hertfordshire Music Service to prepare their songs in rehearsals, with arrangements produced for a live accompaniment by a String Quintet, formed of the principal players of the Hertfordshire Schools’ Symphony Orchestra. Live performances of four original songs were filmed and will be released in July on YouTube.
For a chance to perform in the next series of #HMSOriginals, please complete an audition application by Sunday 3 September 2023.
The first episode of #HMSOriginals launches on Friday 7 July, with a new episode releasing every Friday throughout July 2023, available to watch below.
