Those were the words that came out of Mr. Favio Chavez's mouth, the Director of the Landfillharmonic Orchestra during their performance on Friday, June 3rd in Seattle.
And if you take those words out of context, maybe they won't make any sense. But believe me, they make perfect sense once you hear their story.
The story of the Landfillharmonich Orchestra is one of strength, perseverance, passion, creativity, caring for their community. A story of people, amazing people creating opportunities for children who, otherwise, could never be involved in the world of music.
This is a sumary of their story (taken from their website):
