The event will be later broadcast on national television. MuzArt World Foundation is looking for electronic submissions from any talented kid in the world that can play a string instrument. This will be an amazing opportunity for student musicians to perform together in perfect harmony with other kids from countless countries around the world.
Kids and teens of all ages from anywhere can submit a talent release form and upload an audition video of up to 20 MB in size to the official website for the event.

Musicians can perform one or both of the songs.
