The general public will have the opportunity to meet people benefited by Criança Esperança Programme in TV Globo’s special schedule of broadcasting shows during the whole Saturday (August 31) that will be dedicated to the programme.

Led by the baton of conductor Gilberto Mendes, the project has already trained more than 2 thousand infant musicians in the last 10 years. They have recorded two CDs and they have made several tours around Brazil and Europe.
