Workshop: How to Build a Paper Instrument

In preparation for its launch on March 19th, the UCMP held its first workshop on how to build a paper instrument this past Monday, March 12th at the Eugenio Maria de Hostos Center for Early Childhood Education.

The evening began with welcoming remarks by Principal Adriana Birne and UCMP’s founder Melina García followed by a live performance by UCMP’s Music Director Samuel Marchan, violinist Luis Casal, and violist Peter Borten. After the presentation, the eager parents of the 50 children who will be participating in the Paper Orchestra started working with their children on cutting the models of the violins and assembling some of the parts of the instruments. This workshop will be continued next week. Take a look at some of the pictures from this very exciting evening.
