It was a privilege to work with the Guri Symphonic Youth Orchestra during from 28th July – 9th of August 2017. We gave several performances in São Paulo with a program ranging from Dvorak, Villa-Lobos to sertanejo and baile funk. As part of the project the students were invited to re-think the whole concept and premises of a concert and they came up with incredible beautiful and creative ideas. Besides the rehearsals I was invited to give some masterclasses and lectures. As ‘special feature’ my friends from the New Amsterdam Clarinet Quartet visited São Paulo and made a fantastic contribution to the concerts.
