Whilst social distancing measures remain in place due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the number of musicians able to record in orchestral sections at one time, may be reduced.

As a result, a number of changes are needed to ensure flexibility of management to achieve greater safety.

Also overdubbing smaller sections may be required to make up the sound of a larger orchestra that a client would have booked under normal conditions.

Taking this into account, musicians should be aware of the attached variations to our recording session agreement.
