Hi, everyone!

As the day of the concert approaches, our participants are working even harder on their rehearsals and recording sessions. Every band has an opportunity to record a brand new original song in the studio, with the help of our coaches. Each band has a day scheduled only for recording, and so far it has been a highly creative process.

Other than the usual work, the students have also started having photo shoots with a photographer hired by the staff. They are obliged to think of a place anywhere in the city, where the photo shoot will happen. Stay tuned for more news on the photo shoots and the future plans!

While you’re checking the news, you can also still apply for a seat in the bus that will take you to our closing concert and then bring you back home after it ends.

Until next time!
