Mrs Carey's Concert
Documentary / English
A joyous testament to the transformative power of classical music, one for the whole family.
The redoubtable, driven Karen Carey teaches music at the Methodist Ladies College in Burwood, Sydney. Every two years the school takes over the Sydney Opera House, and every student is involved, whether they like it or not. Mrs Carey pushes her young charges right to – and sometimes beyond – breaking point, and the journeys of young virtuosos as they blossom from teenage shyness is utterly heartwarming. One for anyone who has ever crossed their fingers at a school concert.
