We just returned from two weeks in Ecuador. As usual it was a heart opening experience to work with the young musicians in Esmeraldas and to play a concert with them and their gifted music director Edison Andres Gualotuña Ruiz. Of course we took time to explore the unequaled art and nature of Ecuador.
December 12-19, 2016.
Here are photos from our recent work with Sinfonía por la Vida in Ecuador. Always an extremely rewarding adventure working with the musicians in Esmeraldas. It was especially nice to be there with Rachelle Betancourt. The kids loved her and grew exponentially.
In December, Albert Hunt spent a fantastic week in Ecuador working with teachers and students in Quito and Esmeraldas. It was an inspirational week on many levels. Click on any picture to enlarge.

Dr. Hunt presented a lecture recital on the history of woodwinds to four classes at the European School in Frankfurt Germany. The European School Frankfurt (ESF) is one of the 14 official schools across Europe that are jointly administered by the European Union. This school was built primarily for the children of employees of the European Central Bank (ECB), which is headquartered in Frankfurt.
