Recycled Orchestra Visits Waterloo Friday April 25th – From the Rubble There is Hope & Music

Standard

Image

This sounds like a really great event to support and remind ourselves how little people have in the world and be inspired to see that even in a giant pile of garbage, these people have created joy & music! Free admisson to the event with a goodwill donation is being accepted towards supporting the orchestra.

Image

They are travelling across Canada and to see the entire tour, click here.. 

Click here to watch the YouTube video about this amazing orchestra.. 

====================================================

From the slums of Paraguay comes an unlikely orchestra, playing instruments
made from trash found on the landfill.

The orchestra comes from a slum in Paraguay called Cateura where families live and work on a giant landfill site. They are doing a cross-Canada fundraising tour to help raise money to build a Community Centre and start a scholarship fund so youth in the area have a chance to get a post-secondary education. The Community Centre will act as a social hub in the neighbourhood, offering workshops and courses to the families and will also provide space for The Recycled Orchestra to practice, and offer music classes for children interested in learning an instrument.

There is a dire need for schools in the area, as most teachers and organizations aren’t willing to enter the slum. Their hope is to one day build a school in Cateura so children growing up on the landfill can break the cycle of poverty and get a quality, Christ-centered education.

Recycled Orchestra Canadian Tour

This amazing group will be touring from Toronto to Vancouver with the Recycled Orchestra in May and April of next year, presenting shows in the following cities including Waterloo this Friday night.

Waterloo, ON – Friday, April 25th
