Drawing inspiration from the orchestral centres founded by Jose Antonio Abreu which have saved millions of Venezuelan children from social decay through music, the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole has launched two orchestral centres in Florence, in the multi-ethnic neighbourhoods of Piagge and Sorgane, in order to offer growth and integration, through music, to children in disadvantaged situations. After their regular school activities, more than 80 children have the opportunity to study an instrument for free in the afternoon with highly qualified teachers. They are then able to experiment what they have learned in the orchestra. Our future goal is to hold these lessons daily, 7 days a week and for a longer time period: from 16h30 until 19h30.

Performances and concerts constitute part of the activities and occur at Christmas, at the end of the School Year, and at the Summer Music Festival held at the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole.
To you and to all those who wish to support us we assure you that these children will develop the conviction and the ability to stand together, united to achieve a common goal.
