About this submission

Braxton Allens, a prideful but talented Black conducting student at Colgram Academy, is selected to compete in the annual conducting competition where he has to decide what is more important: tradition or ambition. Highlights the stifling nature of tradition on young artists, while also celebrating the courage to break free from a mold.
