Playing Together Rocks Almaty

We awoke in Almaty to a winter wonderland.  The view of the rehearsal room at the National Conservatory of Kazakshtan looked out at the beautiful snow covered trees. Almaty Workshop 3

The workshops by Omnibus musicians, Kenny Savelson, and Nurlanbek Nyshanov were well attended by about 50 Conservatory students; many who participated in the warm-up training activities and exercises.

On our second day in Almaty, the Central Asian Academy of Contemporary Music performed their unique program of original compositions and traditional music to a very enthusiastic audience.  One audience member even had the opportunity to try conducting the group with the improvisational piece “Body Painting.”
