Anniversary concert big success -- Summer School team reunited

The MwB ten-year anniversary concert yesterday was a big success. An audience of over 200 heard top musicians involved in all MwB projects perform everything from popular Balkan ballades to Janis Joplin.

The Summer School team from the Rock Academy got together again to bring the house down with a rocking rendition of "Me and Bobby McGee," inspiring plans for a Janis Joplin tribute band. I've posted three videos of Rock Academy's performance on the Mitrovica Rock School YouTube channel. Apologies for the shakiness -- the camera woman was enjoying herself!

MwB has allocated the proceeds of the ticket sales to the Mitrovica Rock School. In addition, concert visitors donated a total of € 709.15 to the project, to which our friends at IFOR, with whom we share an office, added another € 100. All these contributions are eligible for a matching grant from NCDO, the Dutch National Committee for International Cooperation and Sustainable Development.
