Cem Mansur’s ‘Laboratory of Democracy’

Conductor and charismatic leader, Cem Mansur, has recently launched his outreach project ‘Laboratory of Democracy’.  The idea behind the project sprung from how immigrant communities integrate into society and the reasons for them shying away from mainstream classical culture.  Maestro Mansur delivers the project to an audience in the format of an open discussion and rehearsal by using the orchestra as a methaphor of society, demonstrating the importance of it functioning as a democratic entity.  Watch Mr Mansur’s short introduction to the project below, and find further information here.
