The students from the Burgas school showed a marked interest in the individual instruments, each of which was presented - through a short motif, by the respective musician playing it. Host Iliana Gabeva also introduced the children to a short biography of the genius composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, whose "Little Night Music" was performed by the orchestra twice - the second time as a conductor was an inquisitive third-grade student who earned this privilege due to his active participation and the correct answers to the questions asked during the educational concert.
