DAHS Tri-M Music Honor Society Hosts Acoustic Cafe

June 13, 2017

DAHS Tri-M Music Honor Society Hosts Acoustic Cafe 001On June 7, Division Avenue High School's Tri-M Music Honor Society, under co-advisors Matthew Nobile and Alison Sellars, hosted an Acoustic Cafe in the Kim Foglia Memorial Garden.

Students performed in an open-mic night type format for an audience as they enjoyed coffee, desserts, and the beautiful cool evening. Members of the honor society board researched earlier in the year for a charity in which to donate too. They chose the Landfill Harmonic Recycled Orchestra of Paraguay.

The Landfill Harmonic Recycled Orchestra is a Paraguayan musical group that plays instruments made entirely out of garbage. It is comprised of children of all ages, many of which live in poverty and are not exposed to music education. Under the direction by Favio Chavez, the students make their own instruments our of materials found in a landfill, which sadly, covers a large portion of their everyday living environment. When their story went viral, the orchestra was catapulted into the global spotlight.

Division Avenue students and music teachers including, Mr. Bastone, Mr. Martufi, and Mrs. Sellars performed a variety of music throughout the evening.

All proceeds from the event will go entirely to the orchestra to help with their travel expenses. The Acoustic Cafe raised over $300 for the cause.
