Admission is free; Donations to benefit the Recycled Orchestra will be accepted at the door.

Representatives of Paraguayan youth orchestra that live next to a giant landfill, playing music from instruments made entirely out of garbage, will be visiting schools and performing on Bainbridge Island on May 31 and June 1. The vision of Favio Chávez, music director of the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, is to provide access to hope and a better life for his pupils. Now known globally, the orchestra’s music is the portal to a life beyond the intergenerational cycle of extreme poverty.

About ten members of the group plan to visit students at Bainbridge Public Schools and Madrona Waldorf school, and will offer a free public performance at Bainbridge Performing Arts at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, June 1. In addition, there will be a showing of a documentary about Chávez's project and its successes—"Landfill Harmonic"—at Bainbridge Cinemas at 7 p.m. that evening. Donations will be collected at the afternoon concert, and a portion of the proceeds of the movie showing will also go to the group. Buy tickets for the movie at Bainbridge Cinemas online HERE.

The visit to Bainbridge Island is organized by the Charter for Compassion and is sponsored by Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA), BI/NK Interfaith Council, Eagle Harbor Congregational UCC, Jennifer Saez and Susan Lorenz—, Perry Foundation, Town and Country Markets and Winslow Cohousing.
