Kids and Music is a project arising from a music class. Conducted by Joan Chamorro, the big band brings together children between 6 and 18 years old, around a classic jazz repertoire with lots of swing, which gained the public’s attention and sold-out some of the most important music auditoriums in Spain.
This documentary is a journey led by the orchestra director, which immerses us in a unique teaching method as unique as the results it unveils. It is a story that will thrill us with these kids’ staging talent and touch us through all sort of sensations that only they are able to bring to life. On this journey they are joined by Jesse Davis, Terell Stafford and Wycliffe Gordon, American musicians admired by all jazz music lovers that feed the spirit of young talent careers as Elsa, who at only 6 years old plays the trumpet like an angel.
Joan Chamorro, the conductor, is the true core of the documentary. We want people to know that this exciting project is the result of his work in a local music school, and the children have not been cast to take part in this orchestra. The documentary reveals Chamorro’s unique personality and allows us to understand his one-of-a-kind teaching method.
