Sir Simon Rattle and the National Children’s Orchestra of Venezuela enchanted their audience at the Salzburg Festival. Founded in 2010 by Jose Antonio Abrud as part of El Sistema, this is their international debut. They perform works including Gershwin’s Cuban Overture, Bernstein’s Mambo, and Strauss’ Radetzky March.

The second part of this Salzburg Festival program is the White Hands Choir concert and documentary about this chorus comprised of children with physical and mental handicaps, hearing difficulties and even deaf-mute children. Their singing merges with choreography through their flowing hand movements. The program features Latin-America folk songs and Piazzolla arrangements as well as choral works by Mozart.

 “This is, quite simply, the future of music.”
- Sir Simon Rattle
