The Giant Orchestra was conducted by the young Yuri Azevedo, a member of NEOJIBA, and included the participation of maestro Ricardo Castro, who spoke to the children who were present in the audience, explained the fundamental principles of El Sistema, the Venezuelan program that inspired the founding of NEOJIBA, and presented the instruments of the orchestra.

In the program, the Giant Orchestra featured Mars, from Gustav Holst’s “The Planets,” the Opening of William Tell by Gioachino Rossini, and Batuque by Lorenzo Fernandez.
