Violin from Landfillharmonic Orchestra Here!

Over the last year and a half, we have been lucky enough to participate in the Instruments Beyond Borders project, detailed in our previous post here.  Instruments Beyond Borders was an instrument donation drive, spear-headed by our friend Janos Maté, for the Landfillharmonic Orchestra, an orchestra made of aspiring and inspiring musicians from Cateura Paraguay, whose incredible instruments are handmade from landfill materials.Instruments for Change 3

A BIG THANK-YOU to everyone who donated an instrument to the Landfillharmonic!

Last week, when these musicians visited Vancouver, we were able to pass along the many instruments that had been donated to us for this cause.  The students are so pleased!

Finally, in thanks for our participation, we have been given a violin from the Landfillharmonic Orchestra!  One of only a few instruments ever donated, we feel very honoured to have received this gift.  Other recipients of these instruments include Queen Sophia of Spain, Jimmy Carter, Princess Beatrix of Holland, Archbishop Claudio Mario Celli, Robert Pattison and the Museums of Musical Instruments in both Phoenix and Berlin.

Take a look at this amazing handmade instrument!
