Players went to a concert - level 1

Basketball and classical music usually don’t go together. People from one team in Turkey went to a concert of classical music. At the beginning they weren’t happy there. They looked at their watches. One player was sleeping. And then things started to change.

The music changed into a Turkish pop song. Some people stood up. They started to sing the song. Cameras filmed the whole situation. The players didn’t know about it. They were shocked. The video about this situation will help the team. More people will go to their matches.

Interesting words: classical music (music for example from Beethoven or Mozart), pop (popular).

You can watch the video in the Level 3 section.
