Summer Fun with Samskrit …

The preparation process itself was quite enriching. May it be kids who requested parents to change vacation plans so that they can attend practices, or a kid managing a keyboard and joining the rehearsal through Skype while travelling, but the excitement of the Samskrit in Symphony concert was priceless. Look at the collage of a musician-only rehearsal below.
