Peace Marching Bands:
The foundation also works to encourage cultural activities within the communities, the most prominent being marching bands. The marching band gives children a healthy extracurricular activity and gets the community involved. At this time, the foundation supports two Marching Bands with a total of 160 students. These bands have participated in regional and national events while representing their state of Antioquia.
Further efforts to pursue music and improve education as ways to find peace and development in the communities, has prompted us to seek assistance from the well-known International Foundation Iberacademy to facilitate the process of converting and integrating the marching bands into full Symphonic Orchestras. At the moment 90 students from two schools receive classes from profesional musicians who are part of the Iberacademy program. The classes vary from music theory to introduction to musical instruments. Additionality, many of our students have the opportunity to attend several musical concerts in different concert halls in Medellin, a unique experience for many of them.
