A Gift to You for These Trying Times


Botso’s story of resilience, hope, and the power of music and art in the darkest of times
is a story that we all need to hear right now.
During this unprecedented time of isolation we want to share widely
the story of survival and connection through music.

From a dark prison in Stalin’s Soviet Union to Morro Bay, California,
we hope this inspirational story of a remarkable teacher — Botso Korisheli — will inspire you
and provide hope for the future as we shelter in place.

This film is free for you to stream April 15 – May 15, 2020, compliments of
the producers and the San Luis Obispo Symphony.
