Watch: Boy with leukemia conducts symphony orchestra

January 8, 2017 by norman lebrecht


Jordan Cartwright is seven years old. He loves music and he has leukemia.

So the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra arranged for him to rehearse and conduct Canada’s National Anthem last week.


There are so many good people out there.
