At a rehearsal
It is very difficult to study music in Mumbai. Young boys and girls often come to play with BCO members. BCO invite the foreign players or students of conservatory of music to play with BCO and have short music seminars of various instruments during rehearsal once or twice a year.

Old building of Royal Opera House in Mumbai
This is decayed Mumbai Opera house. Mumbai was one
of most important city at the India subcontinent under the British
Rule. There must have
been a lot of amusement places for English people who governed the
India at that time. This building must be one of the remaining of
such facilities. I think the Father of Zubin Mehta the famous
musician at that time must have conducted the music at this theater.
Zubin Mehta and India
Zubin Mehta was
the most important and famous musician for western music that
India ever has. Actually his father was famous musician and was a
Parsi and his mother was from Jewish people. So he gives a lot of
music performance at Israel.
