Barcelona Music Video

YouTube Video, Paulie Z and Dan Roeder,
105-piece orchestra and 60-voice choir

 *We made a music video, ALL RECORDED REMOTELY, by over 160 musicians from all over the world!!
 
Karen Garrity Music collaborated with Paulie Z and Dan Roeder to contract a HUGE orchestra and choir to accompany Paulie Z and Lucia Marco performing “Barcelona” written by Freddie Mercury and Mike Moran. It premiered Sunday, July 11, 2021, during the 4th annual fundraiser for the David Z Foundation.
 
This project was a HUGE undertaking.  We worked with musicians from all over the United States, Argentina, Mexico, Greece, and Europe with all of them recording their tracks from their home studios.  Each musician sent us audio tracks and separate video clips which were then masterfully engineered and edited into the final music video, music mixing by Damon Tedesco, and video editing by Paul Zablidowsky.
 
The David Z Foundation is a non-profit organization created in memory of David Zablidowsky and dedicated to transforming lives through the magic of music. Their focus is on providing music education to low-income families and high-risk children while subsidizing the financial costs that come with it. They also offer scholarships through partnerships with music schools such as School Of Rock, Brooklyn College, and various other local organizations around the country.
