Orquestra Geração is one of the organisations supported by Dream Up, the BNP Paribas Foundation’s art education programme. In Portugal, it is developing a programme of social inclusion through music for socially and educationally vulnerable children and teens.
On 4 March, the young people in the Orquestra Geração gave a concert of classical music and jazz at Lisbon’s National School of Music, with the programme ranging from Fauré to Brahms, Hancock and Copland. On that occasion, they offered and signed their first CD for the public!
Moreover, for two years some of these young musicians have joined the Gulbenkian Orquestra for an annual concert conducted by great maestros. They include Venezuela’s Gustavo Duhamel, who learned to play the violin in his country’s music education programme, El Sistema. Through music education, Orquestra Geraçao eases the weight of poverty and fights academic failure. The project allows them to increase their knowledge, develop their imaginations and creativity and participate in a collective endeavour.
