George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue.

Ray Coussins and the Minnesota Youth Orchestra. Filmed in 2012. The Bass Player is 14 years old and is also the lead Alto Sax in the Orchestra. We should all support the musical talent that are the youth in our schools music programmes, a programme some schools so easily cut to save money...but to what end? Include the kids by helping them to to get involved in community orchestras. Music makes peace, not guns. Perhaps you will consider sharing this thought.

I also located a video shot by a guest of Princess Cruise Lines.
"This video was taken with a camera and so the quality is not that great but he was incredible.
He is performing George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue." https://youtu.be/ZqMrX4eQaAw
