PAAX GNP FESTIVAL

Armonía Social

The project

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.

Objective

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 realms of music through youth orchestras with which we will work intensively throughout the year, to make children and young people with scarce opportunities participate in this great experience that is music.
