What is RSO?

Welcome to the Reddit Symphony! Started on Reddit, but also operating on Discord, The Reddit Symphony Orchestra is a thriving online community of musicians. We make music together - and friendships, and stories, and share cat pics and memes - connecting people from all over the globe.

Each musician records their individual part alongside a reference track, and all of the participants are mixed together into our best impression of a real live orchestra or band. Anyone can play, regardless of skill level - we only ask that you be kind to your fellow musicians, and above all, we hope you have fun!

Finished Projects

We have 122 finished projects! View them all on YouTube.

Participating

As mentioned above, anyone can participate in an RSO project - and we have a lot going on at any given time! Have a look at the list of projects below, all of which are seeking recordings, and choose which one you'd like to start with.

To get started, just download the reference track and the sheet music for your part(s) of choice. When you think you're ready to record, load up the click track (make sure it's playing through headphones or earbuds) and play along. There are a lot of ways to record yourself playing; if you don't have a USB mic for your computer or a dedicated audio setup, your laptop mic or a voice recording app on your phone will almost certainly do just fine. If you need help getting the best sound possible in your recording, there are several audio engineers on the Discord server, any of whom would be happy to help get you set up.
