With impressive backgrounds, these musicians have traveled the world and worked with some of the world’s biggest musical legends.
With a cultural diversity much like the band itself, Doral is home to many talented music students with incredible talent and promise in the musical arts. A group of youth musicians enjoyed the unforgettable opportunity of collaborating with eight members of Forbidden Saints at a Master’s Class in the Doral Government Center. The students demonstrated their musical ablity to the band, learned techniques and received advice from these professional musicians. This was the first Master’s Class in the City of Doral’s history and reflects the City’s commitment to our youth as well as to the cultural and performing arts.
