Sing With Haiti
On January 12, 2010, the Holy Trinity Music School was destroyed in a massive earthquake along with most of Port au Prince, Haiti, in one of the most devastating natural disasters in modern times. The school, which has educated thousands of children in formal classical music and given hope to them and their families for over 50 years, was left in utter ruin. The students’ classrooms, their auditorium, their rehearsal spaces and instruments were completely destroyed. There was nothing left except the most important thing — music. And an undaunted will among the students and faculty to continue their education. The students never stopped playing. The faculty never stopped teaching. In parking lots, next to piles of rubble, in tents and under tarps, these remarkable young musicians continued to play and sing for Haiti. Join the celebration of their spirit and their future.
