Lives - Venezuela’s National Children’s Orchestra on Tour

  • Whatsapp

The National Children’s Orchestra of Venezuela made its debut in Caracas with Stravinsky’s Scherzo Fantasique and Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony. We now join the young musicians on a tour through the Llanos and Amazonas regions of Venezuela to enjoy traditional music and dance. We meet the young conductor Jose Luis Alvaray , better known as the “Caribbean Volcano,” who is studying percussion. And we also speak to the orchestra’s tuba player Gleyber Cardenas, who says that music is a global language. “For example, if you play something sad in China, they’re going to understand,” he tells us. teleSUR
