Date: 1988-07-12
Location: Washington, DC, USA - John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts
Attendees: Sting, 200 schoolchildren

Sitting in a red armchair Sting narrates a performance of "Yanomamo", a musical about the rainforest which was performed by the choir and musicians of St Augustine's R.C. High School (Billington, England) at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, USA.

The world's first ecological musical was written by two Lancashire school teachers: Peter Rose and Anne Conlon. It tells the story of the Amazon rainforest and the Indians who live there. It was originally commisioned by the WWF (UK) and forms part of their Educational materials for teachers.

Sting joined the choir to sing the finale, but his microphone failed...

Sting also attended a press conference about the rainforest and was interviewed for "Good Morning America".

Today's performance of "Yanomamo" was broadcast on UK's Channel 4 on March 26, 1989. It was also released as a VHS cassette called Yanomamo - Song Of The Forest.
