The Symphony Orchestra of India (SOI) was performing at the finale of the prestigious Fifth Festival of the World’s Symphony Orchestras, Moscow. It was their international debut. At the end of a magical show they got a 10-minute standing ovation. That was the moment that Carol George, the only Malayali in SOI, had dreamed of.
