'Shillong Chamber Choir and the Little Home School' is the story of one man's endurance to empower his community through educational reform and allow for a system where children would be allowed to grow irrespective of their talents and skills. Neil Nongkynrih's vision to create a school for children in Meghalaya started out as an attempt to just gather people around and play a variety of music. But the choir instead, developed a unique repertoire. Mozart and Beethoven are intertwined with regional tunes from the Khasi area. Along with the music school, there is a home school run by Nongkynrih where sixteen children live, study and pray together.
