We would like support in giving this experience at an iconic place called Sam’s Museum Sculpture Park in downtown Seattle to the most rural students in our area. We will be inviting Tenor from from Durango Mexico Alfredo Carillo to perform with Tenor Jose Iniguez from Eastern Washington. This would be a unique concert with orchestra that celebrates Mexican composers. In addition the funds would help support Students get voice lessons from both Tenors in the lead up to this concert. To have a Latino lead performance and organization this highly recognized museum would be an amazing accomplishment for us as it is hard to get exposure in these museums do to cost.

Funds would help bring students who come from rural communities to not only have voice lessons during the lead up to the concert but also be in attendance at the concert. We would send out the classes being offering to latinx leading organizations like El Centro de Raza and Para Los Ni├▒os to offer these classes for free. In addition your support would help pay for these classes and also costs of getting students to a downtown seattle event.
