Past Exchange Programs
The Volta Music Foundation Team visited Chile in 2019 to deliver much needed supplies to schools and youth orchestras. We also offered free masterclasses to students from Fundación Música para la Integración, Colegio Técnico Profesional Nocedal, and Orquesta Juvenil Lo Barnechea.
A total of fifty students benefited from this cultural exchange program.
Havana Classical Music Fest
Volta Music Foundation created The Havana Classical Music Fest, a week-long workshop with the mission to give music opportunities to young music students in Havana, Cuba.
This Festival is open to the public and includes free masterclasses in Violin, Viola, Cello, Double Bass and Piano for students between the ages of 12 – 18.
Suzuki Workshops are offered to students under the age of 10. The Volta Team also hosts workshops on bow maintenance for string players and repairs selected instruments at no charge.
The Havana Classical Music Fest concludes with a Concerto Competition open to participating students between the ages of 12 – 18. This competition is an opportunity for students to perform one movement of a selected concerto with the symphony orchestra.
Masterclass participants are selected in advance by the Havana Classical Music Fest professors and asked to perform a solo repertoire as well as a chamber music work.
