JTF Worldwide Virtual Concert

JTF Worldwide Virtual Concert

Junior Theatre Festival presented the world's first-ever Virtual Concert performance of 'Children Will Listen' from Into The Woods over the weekend. 

Timothy Allen McDonald introduced the performance with these words, "Leave it to a young person to make the clearest point. If we're going to bring about change, we have to start at the root and that root is education. 

Children listen. Children will listen and they do listen.

Stu Hendricks, he runs MTI Australasia. He said 'Why don't we something with the teachers?' 

Within a few moments, we brainstormed the idea of 'What if we had all of our JTF teachers from all over the world sing a special arrangement of 'Children Will Listen' from Into The Woods?'

And what a better message could we spread into the world right now than 'Careful the things you say' cause Children Will Listen.

Warning right now, if you do not have a tissue, you're gonna need one!"

And Tim is right! Get out your tissues and listen to this beautiful arrangement of 'Children Will Listen'.
