Canadian Program Produces Short Documentary on Pandemic Music-Making

07-21-2021

Enjoy this short documentary from Ottawa-based program OrKidstra about the highs and lows of musical growth and achievement. Produced entirely virtually, You Are Your Own Best Teacher: OrKidstra’s Masterclass Story is a 20-minute video that shares how OrKidstra members kept the music going during distance learning. When the pandemic hit, OrKidstra teachers decided to offer a digital masterclass as a way for students to socialize and create together. What happened next “reimagin[ed] what it truly means to ‘play and sing together.’”
