The Camerata Orchestra goes digital with Newzik

Four players tested out Newzik for a week

In February of 2017, Newzik teamed up with the Israeli Camerata Orchestra to conduct a trial workshop. The trial was performed during a day of rehearsals.

For this trial, the Orchestra would become a hybrid one, as four string players out of the total of 30 players would play on iPad Pros.

The Players using iPads Pros and Bluetooth foot pedal were: Violin, Viola, Cello and Bass. None of the four players had ever used our App or an iPad beforehand to replace their paper scores. The only experience they had, came from preparing the scores at home in the days leading up to rehearsal of the spectacular piece by Mozart.

The results were amazing

During the break, many of the other musicians using paper were eager to try the software as well. They simply saw how smooth and easy it was for the four players on stage to do annotations, and the page turns using a pedal.
