The Taliesin Orchestra is an American musical group that specializes in remaking famous songs into orchestra-style melodies. The band's first album, Orinoco Flow: The Music of Enya, was a collection of songs originally created and sung by Enya; it was released in 1996. Since then the band has recorded several other albums, some of them being further Enya remakes, but also including albums of songs by George Winston and Jim Brickman. Originally on Anthem and again on Rock Rhapsody the band covered such famous songs such as Pink Floyd's "Another Brick In The Wall", Eric Clapton's "Layla" and The Beatles' "Hey Jude". The band covered the famous music piece "Adagio For Strings"
The Taliesin Orchestra is led by keyboardist Trammell Starks and features the voice, vocal arranging, vocal production, and in some cases songwriting of Felicia Farerre. Charles Sayre acts as conductor, producer and arranger.
