Cajuru Music Program

Curitiba, Brazil

The Cajuru Music Program has launched in February 2016, in Curitiba, Brazil.

The starting point of this new new music program has been a outstanding benefit concert hosted at the Opera de Arame in Curitiba, in October 2014, that allowed us to raise a consistent amount of money to start the project. 

The music program is being hosted at a facility owned by the community of neighbours in Cajuru on which we've been doing structural and sound proofing works in order to welcome the music program good conditions.

Free music and English lessons for the youth in the area are being held 3 times a week for now, and the main focus of the music classes is currently what we call "musicalization" which is basically a general introduction to music adapted to a young audience.
