Who are we?

Sinfonía por el Perú was founded by the Peruvian tenor Juan Diego Flórez to benefit disadvantaged children in his country.

In very little time, and through the power of music, participants develop a higher self-esteem, greater tenacity to achieve goals, increased creativity and better ways of living together in society, according to a rigorous impact assessment conducted by the Bureau of Studies for Development - GRADE

What is a Core Group?

What is a Core Group?

It is the musical training unit where the project is developed in a Peruvian town. It serves between 100 and 200 children in choirs, orchestras, and for some cores, in jazz bands.

Within the core groups, achievements can only be obtained if there is teamwork thus developing tolerance, perseverance, responsibility, but especially self-esteem when a child feels valued by their peers and becomes his her family’s pride.

There are currently over 3000 beneficiaries in 12 cores, a luthier’s Workshop and a Symphony Orchestra and Young's Choir where representatives from all cores demonstrate their progress to the public and people like you can help.
