New contrabass owned by MPA
June 11th, 2017
With great joy, we would like to share with you that thanks to the generous contribution we received from you, we were able to purchase a New Double Bass for MPA.
The same will be used for each of the concerts that we perform in CABA and surroundings, so that the volunteer Contrabassists, do not have to transfer the ownership and thus, to facilitate their participation.
In the photo above we can see Matías Cadoni, Contrabassist of the Stable Orchestra of the Colon Theater using it.
Again we would like to thank you for trusting us and allowing us to expand our activities more and more. Music for the Soul is born of a creative experience of value, how to transform suffering into hope, into dignity, into a medicine for the soul? In each concert, music is our tool to achieve this and this is the message we want to convey not only to the patients but to the musicians who participate in our concerts.
