In July, students from the school I work at performed in front of thousands at BT River of Music Festival, the Asia Stage. Urban Playground, the school’s big band, played alongside Clarinettist Arun Ghosh and his Arkestra Makara, an ensemble of world instrumentalists from across Asia.
I filmed the whole performance as well as interviewed students about their experiences and put together this video. It’s really cool to see the kids get inspired and talk so maturely about their excitement of working with such esteemed musicians at such a big performance venue.
