Shostakovich in Colombia!

We had a fanstastic trip to Colombia in August, where we performed the first ever Colombian Shostakovich cycle! There were performances in the Teatro Mayor and the Luis Angel Arango Library (pictured) in Bogota and we travelled to Neiva, where we performed the complete cycle and also had the opportunity to work with some wonderful young Colombian music students.

The students were mostly from the 'Batuta' school (a bit like the 'El Sistema' of Venezuela) and from the Huila Youth Philarmonic, a great young group instructed by talented conductor Diego Barbosa-Vasquez.
And here is their thank you video!!
