You must have heard of quite a few musical geniuses with autism. But have you heard of them playing in ensembles? This is the story of ‘Dream With’ – the Clarinet Ensemble of 8 adult men with autism.
Dream With Ensemble was formed ten years ago with autistic teenage boys. The young teacher struggled hard to get his members to play in ensembles. For ten years, he taught them only one song - Amazing Grace. With the help of their devoted mothers and the resilient teacher, the members finally master the song. Since then, many songs have been added to their repertoire and they started performing in public.
Now that the boys became adult, their mothers and the teacher decide to register the Dream With Ensemble as a Social Co-operatives so that the members can make living as professional musicians. This is the story of these autistic musicians finding their harmony and vocation in this world.
