As part of Fandom Summer, Babes Maria, Ardy and Sarah talk to Alicia, Elliot and Matt, who are the masterminds behind the Sherlock Fan Orchestra, a wonderful project that brings the musicians of the Sherlock fandom together to play pieces from the official soundtrack. Look at their latest video, Pursuit, and make sure you follow them on Twitter: @elliotorin, @matterhines and @alicemundy. Find out how the logistics of a big fan project work, how long it takes and what work is involved in wrangling a mass of musicians from across the globe to play a piece as a symphonic orchestra. (Hint: it's a lot, and it still sounds like pure magic to us). Also, what crazy instruments have people submitted, and what can we hope for from the orchestra in the future? Listen to the podcast for answers to all these questions and more. The Sherlock Fan Orchestra is endorsed and supported by the show's cast and crew, including Michael Price and David Arnold, the composers of the soundtrack.
