OUR MISSION


• BRING NEW OPPORTUNITIES TO YOUNG MUSICIANS

• ENCOURAGE MUSICAL EXCELLENCE

• SUPPORT 33 MUSIC SCHOOLS IN CUBA

• DELIVER SUPPLIES TO MUSIC INSTITUTIONS

• PROVIDE INSTRUMENTS TO YOUNG MUSICIANS

 

The Volta Music Foundation seeks to enrich the development of classical music education in Latin American countries by donating needed supplies and by providing training on maintenance and repair of instruments. Our goal is to provide exceptionally talented, young Latin American instrumentalists special opportunities such as; classes, mentorship, cultural exchange, and performance opportunities in order to develop their musical careers. This will be achieved by short, intensive musical training sessions conducted by professional musicians and luthiers who will travel to Latin America.

Our hope, in the future, is to introduce these eager students to different cultures by allowing specially selected students to travel to the United States. In addition, the Volta Music Foundation will contribute to these students’ education by donating needed musical supplies such as gently used; strings, instruments, bows, accessories, scores, recordings, and musical textbooks. The Volta Music Foundation aims to provide and create opportunities for young Latin American musicians to nurture their musical endeavors.
