In the following list are more clips of concerts performed with my orchestra ‘The Outcry Ensemble’. The orchestra, which I founded in 2012, performs new works, often specially commissioned for the concert in question. The quality of sound is not always fantastic because the layout means we cannot always place the camera in the best position for both video and audio recording,  there are also audio clips recorded from a better position.
