The Book of Orchestra 2008 Collaboration work with Households (George Wu and Sarah Gottlieb) 50 Hands is a simple book that allows participants to become part of a fully-fledged Orchestra. Regardless of musical ability, you will be able to play popular classics within just one hour. Inspired by Change Ringing - Outside the church environment, Bell Ringers would memorise their musical sequences through the use of Hand Bells. Each page is cut to a pretuned length which is torn out, rolled and attached to a length of straw to transform the book into a series of whistles. Participants play together following a conductor which is on the included DVD following corresponding symbols progressing through the levels untill they can play completely unaided.
