Our dearest donor

This year we happily started a training program for all of our monitors, who are part of our teacher group. We have three different group of monitors: (i) a group of new monitors which recently began their training as such, (ii) the group of current monitors who already received the basic training and ar currently dictating classes to their groups, and (iii) the most experienced monitors who are training to become teachers.

This year we updated our working methodology considering previous experiences of our General Director María Adelaida, who returned from Germany.

We had a three-day training day in which all of our monitors and teachers participated in several talks and workshops with immense enthusiasm.


Please feel free to share your experience with our project!


Best regards,

This is for you, dear donorr. A brief on one of our rising stars, Mariana. Please enjoy and share the voice. 




Todos los niños y niñas tienen cualidades que los hacen únicos, qué moldean su personalidad y su desempeño en todos los aspectos de la vida. En lo musical, específicamente como solista, Mariana (10 años) ha mostrado un gran avance en el último año coral. Tiene una seguridad vocal que la anima a realizar los diferentes solos de las canciones. Ha perdido la timidez y se comporta como líder. Tiene una memoria excelente e invita a sus compañeros a aprender más y más canciones. Es muy buena rítmicamente y aprende muy rápido, En el último año realizó solos muy importantes en el coro y fue un apoyo para su monitora.  


Los coros de la Fundación Sirenaica se caracterizan por aumentar en los niños y niñas el amor por el canto, además del amor propio y la búsqueda constante del mejoramiento artístico.



All children have qualities that make them unique, which somehow shape their personality and their performance in every aspect of life. In music, specifically as a soloist, Mariana (10 years old) has shown great progress in the last choral year. She has a vocal security that encourages her to perform the different solos of the songs. She has lost all shyness and today behaves as a leader. Si has incredible retention memory and also invites her friends to learn more songs every time. She manages rhythm very well and learns quickly; In the past year she performed very important solos within the choir performances and became a support for her monitor.


The choirs of our Foundation are characterized by their ability to increase in children their love for music and singing, as well as encouraging self-love and their constant search for artistic improvement.

2017 in a nutshell!

Dearest Donors,

2017 was undoubtedly a great year for our foundation. We believe that as our supporters, you deserve some insights on our joint achievements and on our goals for this year.


In a nutshell, 2017 meant:

-          Growth: eight new Young teachers /monitors began their training process to enter our program.

-          Culture: the Foundation participated in 80 concerts of exclusively Colombian music.

-          Apprenticeship: 10 young monitors trained a total of 400 students and dictated around 1330 hours related to this program.

-          New perspectives: Cuban teacher Digna Guerra dictated a course for our monitors on Choral direction, dance and corporal rhythmic.

-          New boundaries: 30 of our most trained children represented the foundation in a major event abroad their natal city.

-          Expertise: 60 of our children from the seedbeds have achieved a more professional level, being able to sing two to three voices and acquiring a major musical development.

-          Friendship: strong bonds of friendship were created among the children attending the choirs and even among the different choirs; the choirs recognize within each other.


One of the most important comments from parents is that their children make more friends and overcome shyness as well as fear when they face important challenges in the choral practices.

By 2018 there will be changes within the choirs as some advanced students will be transferred to the another choir where they will work with greater intensity. This implies the beginning of the training process in some choirs with new children to arrive and the adjustment of the choir’s work in order to blend actual and new children. We will begin auditioning and preparing such adjustments in mid-February 2018.

We hope we count with your generous support as we did last year and we sincerly wish you the best of wishes on these days to come. 


As always, please Spread the VOICE! *
