The Seville concert was a notable success, thanks to the dedication of the musicians and the undeniable passion of Maestro Heras Casado and violinist Amaury Coeytaux, who replaced Miguel Colom. The concert tour that was to continue in Cordoba and Granada had to be cancelled for reasons derived from COVID 19. The participation of the Robert F. Kennedy Spain Foundation in this project is another example of its commitment to building a more just world, where human rights can be present in the educational programs of all the young people of the world.
Pablo Heras-Casado, the great, international director, simply blew our minds with his charisma and ability to connect the crowd directly to every musician on that stage. Everyone in the Teatro de la Maestranza de Sevilla theater emphatically responded with varios roaring, standing ovations, further highlighting the overall success of the event for everyone involved.
We would like to wholeheartedly thank everyone who made this initiative possible, especially the entire team at the Barenboim-Said foundation (Muriel Paez, Ana Julia, Raquel Gilabert, Juan Fernandez Pantoja, Miguel Colom, and additionally Amaury Coeytaux together with the Master Pablo Heras Casado, everyone at the Teatro de la Maestranza, the Andalusian local government (Junta de Andalucía), and Patricia del Pozo, Councilor of Culture and Historical Heritage of the Regional Government of Andalusia for her tremendous support.
