Generation Orchestra. A children's orchestra to dream

Generation Orchestra is a portrait of the impact of an initiative by the same name on students from the Miguel Torga School, in Amadora. 

The initiative was inspired by the international project Orquesta Sinfónica Simón Bolívar, the apex of the National Network of Youth and Children's Orchestras of Venezuela.

Ana, Daniel, Diogo and Mónica take part in Generation Orchestra and devote themselves to a project that breaks with the formatted context of public schooling and becomes an indispensable part of their lives.
