  • Truly inspiring story. I am convinced that this admirable undertaking has definitely changed many of these young people’s lives for the better (not to mention transforming the region), which otherwise would not have happened. The inherent good of good music making… There needs to be a lot more like this, maybe this is the only way classical music can go now – ensuring ever more young listeners/participants, this way classical music will survive. Spread the word… 🙂
