PAAX GNP FESTIVAL
Armonía Social is a program of instruction and collective practice of orchestral music for children and young adults that promotes discipline and talent through improvement workshops and sectional rehearsals developed in core groups.
A child in an orchestra learns the ability to imagine the abstract and to fulfill new goals and dreams. Through the discovery of the transcendental power of music, a child also learns to explore creativity, find identity and belonging and generates self-esteem and trust in the group. In addition, it is an antidote to school dropout and the lack of future and hope.
Armonía Social aims to develop a standard of musical education and improve the educational and artistic quality of the Yucatan Peninsula region. It is a program that aims to open the wings of music through youth orchestras with whom we work intensively throughout the year, to engage girls, boys and young people with limited opportunities.
In 2022, the initial year, we had 12 participants, with very successful performances at the festival. This year we have more than 63 children and young adults playing in the orchestras of Armonía social learning and playing side by side with the international level musicians who will be joining us this year at the Paax GNP festival.
It will be promoted in a timely manner to recruit young musicians who will be part of the program in 2023.
