Virtual Reality concert experience at Yorketown

THE Southern Yorke Peninsula Community Telecentre, at Yorke­town, became the first place in the state to host the Adelaide Sym­phony Orchestra’s ENCORE in Virtual Reality project last Thursday.

The project was conceived to provide a symphony orchestra experience for people unable to attend a live concert, and to allow older community members to combine virtual reality technology with music.

Those who attended the Yorketown sessions donned earphones and a headset to hear and see the music as if they were sitting in the middle of the orchestra.
