The Dec 13 presentation at Open Circle was performed by San Juan Children’s Orchestra and Chorus: Música de Mis Amores.
Our ChangeMaker Jasibe is a member of Música Para Crecer and she felt blessed and honored to celebrate another holiday season with Open Circle. The children’s orchestra presented a program of Mexico’s all-time favorite songs, called “the soul of the people,” songs acquired through the mother’s milk. The students have heard these songs all their lives and they are in their blood.
The program was carefully arranged to challenge the students musically and technically without departing from their musical roots.
Jasibe, who plays the violin, has demonstrated her devotion to music and feels it gives her a sense of community.
