Reviews on Googler Orchestra founded in 2016

An insecure boss who thinks they know-it-all is one of the most dangerous things you can ever encounter in your career. The best leaders are humble leaders.

The Googler Orchestra was founded in 2016 and quickly became a Google institution.

Members rehearsed weekly and hosted performances on a quarterly basis for the rest of the company to enjoy.

When Googlers started working from home, the Googler Virtual Orchestra was born. Today over a hundred members of the Orchestra chime in from their home offices to perform together.

It presents a logistical challenge: Googlers record their parts individually and then edit the footage together into one track. But it’s all worth it, providing Googlers a way to keep collaborating with fellow musicians at work and sharing their music Google-wide. 🎺🎻🎶

As Googler Nancy Kwong Yuen put it: “WFH has allowed me to swap my 3+ hour commute with time to create and play music … this has brought me such happiness and peace.”

Googler Alex Adamczyk added: “Playing with the WFH Orchestra allows me to connect with Googlers and the orchestral community that I love, even though we all interact through our monitors now.”

What’s next for the Googler Orchestra? More work-from-home performances, potentially adding other instruments or even a choir! Head to our blog to watch a Googler Orchestra performance and learn about other Googler creative WFH pursuits ➡️
