Mrs Carey's Concert delivers an emotionally charged and satisfying experience.
The only thing more beautiful than the music is seeing those simple, subtle moments that nobody could possibly script.
Connolly and Raymond capture both the pressure and joy of practice and performance and include plenty of footage of the teenagers simply going about the process of growing up and learning to work together.
The tireless Carey makes for a deserving subject in this witty, warming and rousing documentary about a school's duty to inspire students to achieve greatness.
The most impressive feature of this documentary is the breadth of material it covers in its 95 minute running time.
Connolly and Raymond find the right balance in explaining why music affects us through the lives of these characters ... and also picking the right moments, particularly in the shivers-up-your-spine finale, to sit back and let the music speak for itself.
