A partnership with memorable results
Even though their choir was born just two years ago at Palmarito´s school, the students made it to the festival, participating in concerts together with Bolivian professional singers and musicians from the Royal College of Music Baroque Orchestra.
A long lasting relationship that promotes local culture
By practicing very hard, with no electricity and after long hot hours at the only school in Palmarito, their natural Guarani voices classified to the high standards set by APAC for the bi annual festival that Total E&P Bolivie sponsors 17 years ago. Thirty-six students, directed by their dedicated teacher, left the community, some for the first time, and gave three concerts at Camiri, Santa Cruz de la Sierra and Santa Rosa. Total E&P Bolivie´s collaborators where very proud to sponsor the young choir and thus promote local culture.
