Want to sing on BBC One? Send us your Do-Re-Mi performance video
If you love The Sound of Music then the BBC Proms and BBC Radio 2 want to hear your voice!
We're celebrating 50 years of Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic The Sound of Music at the Last Night of the Proms, including the premiere of a new version of Do-Re-Mi, as performed by you, our UK-wide virtual choir! All you have to do is record yourself singing along to Do-Re-Mi, submit it below and we'll put together as many of your videos as we can.
The performance video will be revealed at the Last Night of the Proms in the Royal Albert Hall live on BBC One and on the Big Screens at the Proms in the Park celebrations in Hyde Park on Saturday 12 September.
How to send your video:
- Film yourself singing along to the song Do-Re-Mi, while listening to the backing track on this website through headphones.
- Send your video file to us via the upload form on this page by Sunday 30 August 2015.
It's as simple as that!
Before you start here are some useful tips:
- Watch the 'Singing lesson' with Rebecca Lodge from the BBC Singers. Rebecca then sings the whole in part 2.
- Practice a few times to familiarise yourself with the music.
- Make sure your face is sufficiently lit.
- Make sure you video yourself in "landscape" or horizontal view (not portrait)
- Think about the background you're against – make sure you stand out and that the background isn't too busy.
- Find somewhere quiet. Don't forget to wear headphones when listening to the backing track so we get to hear your voice in all its glory.
- You can sing it alone, in groups or with your family.
- Get creative – this is the Sound of Music after all.
- And most important of all - sing loud and have fun!
