Dedicated to the belief that the arts play an essential role in creating a more just and peaceful society.

The Foundation's goal is to expand the opportunity to experience music for as many children and communities as possible. We believe that music provides a universal language that transcends our differences and has a unique capacity to build bridges of understanding among all peoples. Music does more than nourish the human spirit. Its very practice instills focus and discipline, respect for others, a spirit of collaboration and many other values that make us better citizens of the world.  

Tocar y luchar.
To play and to fight.
