In the second season Maestro Rodrigo goes on fighting with the invincible world of classical music. Only from the first sight it may seem that the world of music is peaceful and harmonious. But we need only to get the backstage and everything suddenly becomes not so fabulous and bright. As it turns out the band is not so friendly as they appear to be on the scene. They are constantly waging a fierce struggle for a place in the sun often sacrificing friendship and love. In the new season new meetings and problems wait for maestro. The main point is relations with Oboist Hailey. Rodrigo tries to settle the troubles with Hailey, but he does not always succeed in it. After all, in order to find true love he needs to take a lot of effort, but in order to save it he needs even more. But it does not matter how difficult it is for Rodrigo to cope with personal troubles, problems at work still wait for him, and he has to solve them. That's because all the worries about Hailey reflect in the work dedicated to symphony. Maestro will have to pull himself together and divide personal relationships and work, as it is impossible to arrange private life and think about work at the same time and vice versa.
