Landfill Harmonic Orchestra - Charter for Compassion

Representatives of Paraguayan youth orchestra that live next to a giant landfill, playing music from instruments made entirely out of garbage, performing on Bainbridge Island on June 1--launching the Compassionate Bainbridge initiative.

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.
