SYSO & YMO to record original music for award-winning podcast
Sutton Music Service’s Young Musicians Orchestra (YMO) and Sutton Youth Symphony Orchestra (SYSO) have been invited to record a selection of musical cues for the award-winning podcast sitcom, Wooden Overcoats.
Wooden Overcoats is a sitcom with heart. Its characters are written with depth and development in stories that draw on multiple genres and cultural references. As such, the music is by turns dramatic, silly, romantic, but always sincere.
The show’s composer, James Whittle, has composed a series of short pieces to be used in the podcast’s fourth and final season.
Students from SYSO and YMO will combine for the recording session at St. Andrew’s United Reform Church at the start of December.
“This project is a fantastic opportunity for our young musicians to experience working with a composer and being part of a professional recording session. It will be an engaging and rewarding experience for all of the students involved.”
