The project's main event – the National Teachers' Training Course in Kyiv – saw 45 music teachers in attendance (more than planned), with 15 of those coming from other Ukrainian cities. That widespread interest is a valuable contribution by MCI to the development of our national cultural diversity. The training received by the session participants (interns) was put to work during subsequent musical camps. Teachers will also be applying the methods learned during their work outside the camps.
There were four musical camps in all, with a total of 405 children registered for instruction by our 14 current teachers and 6 new interns.
4 concerts were held on large stages in Voznesensk, Kamyanets-Podilsky, Zhytomyr and Chervonohrad, and accompanied by local professional orchestras (Khmelnytsky Philharmonic, Mykolaiv Philharmonic, Lviv's LeoBand Orchestra, and the Zhytomyr Symphony Orchestra
