A symphony orchestra at the office


– I think it might be time. (laughter) All right. Bye! (laughter) (orchestral music) The misconception is that here your life is your work. That often surprises
people, that we can have a full symphony orchestra. (orchestral music) I hadn’t had the chance to play my flute for almost seven years. (flute music) That was definitely a big draw for me, just knowing I could reconnect with a big part of my identity again. I am a technical sourcing
recruiter in advertising. It’s nice to just be able
to leave that at the door once a week. (music) – When you’ve been in front of a computer or in meetings all day, it
really does make a difference to just have that group accessible. I can leave my desk and go down a floor to rehearsal, which is awesome. – We’ve got something really unique here that isn’t necessarily
found anywhere else. Just dip over for the C sharp. Yeah. A lot of people have cited the orchestra as a reason why they
love working at Amazon. – Anyone can play, regardless of ability, regardless of skill level, regardless of how long it’s been
since they’ve played. – We have this shared experience of working at Amazon together,
and then on top of that we’re able to connect through the music. (music) – I always get a lot
of pre-concert jitters. (laughter) But it’s like good jitters. – Being able to have
nearly a thousand people at every performance has
been absolutely amazing. – And you’re all set. (orchestral music) – We have free concerts
open to the public. We’re all excited to see you there and come be a part of our community. It’s magical, really. (dramatic orchestral music)
