SUCCESS THROUGH MUSIC

In honour of its 10th anniversary, OrKidstra is very pleased to announce that has partnered with Ottawa-based, Turkish born filmmakers Cihan Taşkın, Cafer Tayyar Kala and Ramazan Yıldız of Kanata Productions and Omer Livvarcin, Ph.D. of Vectors Group to create an inspiring 10-part, short film series called SUCCESS THROUGH MUSIC. OrKidstra is deeply grateful to Kanata Productions and Vectors Group for volunteering their time and extraordinary talents for this project.

The one-minute film series SUCCESS THROUGH MUSIC will explore values that are important to OrKidstra’s young students – such as purpose, possibility, resilience, growth, and gratitude – and will feature musical performances by the students. The video series will be published throughout the remainder of 2017 in celebration of OrKidstra’s 10th anniversary and its ongoing mission to empower kids and build community through music! Watch and listen as OrKidstra’s students explore values that are important to them in SUCCESS THROUGH MUSIC.
