Filarmónica Joven de Colombia to Play at New World Center
As part of Colombia’s Promotion Plan Abroad which promotes the country overseas through its cultural expressions, and coordinated by the Colombian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Colombian Embassy to the United States, the Consulate of Colombia in Miami and the Bolivar Davivienda Foundation (Fundación Bolívar Davivienda), the Filarmónica Joven de Colombia (Colombian Youth Philharmonic) will play at the New World Center on Friday, July 26. Such a great concept to be promoting culture and also allowing these young students to travel the world!
This concert marks the first time a Latin American orchestra plays at the prestigious center, is funded by the Bolivar Davivienda Foundation and is open to the public.
The world-class Filarmónica Joven de Colombia offers kids from all of Colombia, and from diverse social strata, a grand opportunity to transcend cultural, social and physical boundaries through music. It has helped to put Colombia on the map as a center for orchestral music and as a Mecca for arts and culture. Since its inception in 2010, the philharmonic has brought classical music into the hearts of the Colombian audience, transforming and bridging communities throughout the country. Each year a call for auditions is made to musicians between the ages of 16 and 24, and selections are based on musical achievements via a rigorous audition process.
And there’s great news…the general public is invited to attend the free concert on July 26! Tickets are available online at the New World Center website, a small handling fee of $6 is required, or by calling the New World Center directly. Tickets are limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis…so make sure you get your tickets ahora!
