As it is, Salt Lake Pops Orchestra's goal is to create songs and free sheet music for orchestras. They take modern pop music and then put it into orchestration to revitalize communities, as well as public high school orchestras. They have recently made and published an orchestration titled Firework. Firework stars David Osmond on vocals, Aubree Oliverson as violin soloist, and Nathaniel Drew as Conductor.
Nathaniel Drew has called the Salt Lake Pops Orchestra "Revolutionary". He says it is revolutionary because it revitalizes community orchestras around the United States by providing free sheet music for famous pop songs. His hope is not only to ensure that community orchestras and high schools don't have to pay for sheet music, but also that they will play music that will encourage more youth in the community to attend their concerts.
About this Utah orchestra, Nathaniel Drew states specifically, “The Revolution Symphony would like to present a solution. Play music that speaks to the people in your orchestra, potential orchestra members and your audience. Continue to play the incredible music of Beethoven, Bach and Mozart, but supplement that music with something that will excite your kids: popular music from artists they already listen to! Katy Perry's "Firework"! Make YOUR orchestra current, relevant and FUN again! Even one song every concert could change things for your orchestra. To help you we've decided give our sheet music away for free. The individual parts. The score. Everything. You can even email us if you have special needs for your orchestra. We do ask for donations so that we can continue this revolution. It simply helps provide free music for others who don't have any money.”
Firework by Katy Perry is a wonderful song about how you can shine regardless of what you're up against or what others think or say about you. Firework, in this rendition, is sung by David Osmond who takes the vocals to a new level. The video literally is about a true life firework Aubree Oliverson. At 13 she became one of the best violinists in her age group in the world. Some could argue that she is one of the best violinists in the world regardless of race. Aubree, masterfully, is the Mozart accompanist to David Osmond's singing.
Nathaniel Drew believes in this so much that he has volunteered his time to do this. He has gotten many other well known artists who share his vision to participate. In fact, Nathaniel Drew has created http://www.revolutionsymphony.com to help with his "Revolutionary" idea.
