Festive welcome at home for Colombian Orchestra.

The European Music Festival for Young People had a highly successful scoop this year. On the EMJ-Facebook page, the swirling proclamations and some high quality concerts could be followed world-wide via livestream. This way, parents, friends and acquaintances of the musicians, at the home front, in all of Europe, Asia and South America, had the opportunity to enjoy the Festival for the first time this year. By the way, After four days,  the page burst with congratulations and appreciation for this EMJ-scoop. In just about all countries, the interest in the EMJ was particularly large, especially in the South American country Colombia. The concert of the Banda Sinfonica Infantil Nobsa was  being followed on large screens with enormous interest. The Orchestra won a 1st prize cum laude in Neerpelt, a fact that  the orchestra members felt, once they got home. At Bogota airport, the Group was welcomed by a cheering crowd, followed by  a long procession of honking cars through the streets. Since images often tell more than words, you really need to check out this link to experience  what joy and emotions the EMJ caused in Colombia:
