"My congratulations to all of the JSO musicians! starts JSO conductor William Morse. "The "Enchanted Garden" movement from the Mother Goose Suite, by Maurice Ravel, was one of the many pieces considered for a virtual performance. There are many things to consider when attempting a project of this nature.
