OrKidstraJanuary 10, 2022
OrKidstra – an Ottawa-based social development program – is made of kids from under-served communities who come together to learn life skills through music. The forum attendees were treated to OrKidstra’s recorded performance of The Caravan by Duke Ellington and Juan Tizol. Written in 1936, The Caravan is one of the most recognizable Jazz songs of the 20th century. It features a slithering, chromatic melody, and has become famous through many interpretations by Jazz musicians and its use in television and films around the world.
