Virtual Guitar Ensemble Play-Along and Video Creation Opportunity!

There will be an opportunity for everyone to play in a virtual guitar ensemble with a medley of multi-level music inspired by Peace and Light from around the world. This is a collaborative arrangement by four talented SCGS members: Meredith Connie, Ming Huang, Stephen Howland, and Mark Wilson.

All of the parts and the backing track are available online at:

To be a part of the virtual guitar ensemble, after the sheet music and the backing track are posted, please download the part(s) you would like to play, as well as the backing track. The backing track has all the parts, and starts with 2 measures of click. Listen to the backing track in headphones, and record yourself (audio only) playing your part. Please send your mp3 to, and we will edit it all together!

A couple of notes about this arrangement:

1. The four pieces in the medley are different tempos, so there are two measures of click in between each variation to set the player up for the new tempo. These gaps will be edited out in the final project.

2. The first piece, O Nata Lux by Thomas Tallis, arranged by Mark Wilson,
has some dissonance that is part of the music.

3. Parts 4, 5, and 6 are only for O Nata Lux by Thomas Tallis, arranged by Mark Wilson,
the rest of the ensemble has only 3 parts.

4. If you would like to participate but would prefer to play only one or some of the music in the medley, and not the entire piece, please go ahead and record your part and leave the rest silent. You may also record different parts for different pieces in the medley. It will all be edited together. We would love your participation at whatever level feels comfortable to you!

Submit Images for the Video

You may also collaborate on this project by submitting images and/or texts inspired by something that brings you peace and light. A few technical wizards behind the scenes will use the audio, visual, and text submissions to create a video for everyone to enjoy at the concert, celebrating community participation and a shared vision of hope for the new year. Please send your own or public domain images and/or texts to

The deadline to send all materials for the collaborative video is Monday, December 5, 2022. If you have any questions or need more time, please contact us at

The SCSG sends everyone very best wishes for a safe, healthy, and happy holiday season and new year!
