Africa's unlikely orchestra

The US news program Sixty Minutes ran a story April 8 on “Africa’s unlikely
orchestra”. If you missed,  it’s worth watching an interview with
correspondent Bob Simon online:
nlikely-orchestra/. The veteran (and jaded) journalist was unexpectedly
moved to tears by the orchestra’s rendition of Beethoven’s Ode to Joy. Let’s
hope that this orchestra can navigate diplomatic channels and have the
opportunity to perform in other countries! What great ambassadors for
Congo’s resilience and talents.
