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! *

Dear Donors, 

On behalf of the foundation, today we are submitting a series of pictures of several pretty letters that we recently received from our students on the seedbed shoruses. They all express thair thank you, which we wish to make extensive to all of you, because all of these children wouldn't have had such opporunity if it weren't for our dearest donors. 

 

As newsflash we can tell you that our seedbed program was supported by the Municipality and several individuals who supported the foundation and the children, acting as "godparents" to our project. 

 

Thanks to all your added support, as well as governmental participation and donor aid, throughout the year we attended and trained three hundred and twenty eight children (328) between ages eight (8) and fourteen (14) . Also, twelve (12) student teachers (monitors) were newly trained; ten (10) young teachers dictated classes and courses on their own and nine (9) educational institutions were favoured. 

 

Thanks again and kindest regards to you all, 

La Quintana Chorus

She came into the class with a big smile on her face, like always. The kids ran to greet her and she was happy to see them. Their teacher was already there and gave the order to start today's class and training. 

Angie is only eleven years old and is part of the Santa Teresa Chorus since four years ago. Angie is a very committed and talent full kid and her teacher realised such thing since the first class she attended. Is because of her helpful attitude that she was chosen as a monitor for the Seedbed Choirs and as of today, the students respect her and follow her instructions.

With your support, young kids like Angie Juliana will be able to receive full training towards becoming choir directors and teachers. It is because of your constant support that we have identified a lot of talent in direction within our students. 

 

Today we are proud to tell you that our young monitors are in charge of 600 students of ages between 8 and 14, whom are part of the seedbed choirs. 

Coming up...

October 2017: Our young monitors will have the chance to train in choral direction with the prestigious Cuban Teacher Digna Guerra, who has earned several international prizes in choral direction. 

 

Feel free to spread the VOICE and tell some of your friends about our beautiful project! You will feel happy! :)
