ESC Ambassadors at Adventure Film Festival

DSC01628

On Saturday, September 12th, the El Sistema Colorado Ambassadors, an ensemble composed of students and staff who represent ESC in performances throughout the community, were given an opportunity to perform at the Adventure Film Festival, an annual event held at the Boulder Theater. The film festival aims to bring audiences inspiring stories of life and adventure from around the world.

ESC Ambassadors provided an appropriately upbeat musical encore to Landfill Harmonic, a film which chronicles the success of the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, a group of young musicians living near a landfill in Paraguay who play on instruments amazingly constructed from garbage. Landfill Harmonic underscores the transformative power of music which is seen and heard among the El Sistema community every day. Thank you, Adventure Film Festival, for allowing us to share our love of music with the community of Boulder!
