DPS-TV to air Sarajevo trip documentary


Part One of “United Through Music,” a video documentary that chronicles the Stivers orchestras’ participation in a unique concert in Sarajevo last fall, will premiere on DPS-TV (Time Warner Channel 21) at 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. on June 6. The first episode will air several times between June 6 and 10, with three additional installments to air this summer.

Shot on location in Dayton and Sarajevo by Jennifer Bryant, a field production specialist with DPS-TV, “United Through Music” details the extraordinary journey of local young musicians who participate in a multinational concert for peace. Some 25 hours of footage was shot from the 10-day tour in October 2004. Part One follows students during their preparation for the trip, as well as Maestro Edin Dino Zonic, Stivers’ conductor-in-residence, who returns home to his war-torn country for the first time in 12 years.
