Another great performance by Finlay with the Virtual Video Game Orchestra
Finlay McKechnie, in Year 12, is continuing to perform with the Virtual Video Game Orchestra who have just released their fourth project “Between Heaven and Earth” from the video game Fire Emblem: 3 houses. The piece features 149 recording submissions from musicians across the global video game music community, with Finlay being one of the younger members of the group.

Finlay is a keen musician and is studying A-levels in Music, Classics, Maths and Further Maths. Finlay said: “This is another fantastic piece of music and was once again really fun to record. If you play an instrument and think recording music for a group like this could be for you, I highly recommend it. I’d like to go into music, but I’m not sure how well the live music industry will survive in the future.
Finlay started to work with the Virtual Video Game Orchestra during the first lockdown and is already working on several other videos that are in production and he has plans to record some more soon. Stephen Boyd, Lead Teacher for Music, said: “I am so pleased with Finlay’s dedication to music making, especially considering the current difficulties for the Arts across the world. The independence and creativity Finlay has shown by involving himself in these projects and then performing to such a high standard is a joy to see!”
