Ayelén Escobar (18 years old) "Thanks to the Scholarships for Higher Education Program I can continue my studies."
"Since 2013 I am part of the Scholarships for Higher Education Program and study music, an incentive that helps me and allows me to continue with my studies. In the orchestra we are like one big family, and our friendship goes beyond music. I play the violin; an instrument that varies its sounds according to the feeling you want to express".
Lucas Wagner ( 21 years old) "Being part of an orchestra, you learn life lessons and adopt new values".
"I am studying at the Conservatory of Martinez and I've been awarded a Scholarship for Higher Education in music, which helps me continue with my training. I joined the orchestra in 2009, playing the viola, and I enjoy everything that I’m taught (he states with enthusiasm). I believe that in being part of an orchestra you learn things about life and are formed in values such as respect, companionship and responsibility".
