THE REPUBLICAN GUARD ORCHESTRA GOES DIGITAL WITH NEWZIK

A military orchestra enjoying the iPad-performance

In April 2018, Newzik partnered with the French Republican Guard Orchestra for a performance of Ludwig van Beethoven’s work.

This one-time concert took place in Paris at the Saint-Louis des Invalides cathedral, where the ensemble hosted three renowned soloists: the violinist Augustin Dumay, the cellist Henri Demarquette and the pianist Michel Dalberto.

The performance was Newzik’s first collaboration with a military ensemble, and the 50 musicians performed three different pieces using iPad Pros and Bluetooth pedals. Collaborating with a military orchestra in a historic monument was a unique experience for Newzik.

Bringing such a new technology to the Invalides cathedral - a place imbued with French history - was both a striking symbol as well as a challenge for the musicians involved. As most of them had not previously worked with digital scores, the transition from paper to digital had to be fast and efficient.

The musicians easily and successfully embraced the iPads and found that the Newzik tool was perfectly adapted to rehearsals and performances in diverse locations.

THE DIGITAL EXPERIENCE

Performing with iPad Pros at the Invalides cathedral was a definite first for the military orchestra.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS Following the highly-praised performance, each musician filled out a questionnaire about their experience working with Newzik.

“It was very enjoyable!”

“It’s easy to see the many possibilities offered by Newzik. The sofware is extremely fluid and allows all parties to save a huge amount of time. The page turn using a Bluetooth pedal is a very interesting feature and, for the very first time, clean annotations can be shared between all members of the orchestra! This is an experience that should definitely be tried and tested, as digital scores may become the new musical standard.”

Fabien Roussel, Violinist
