Octavio Brunetti

Our friend OCTAVIO BRUNETTI has been in the hospital since August 3rd and is fighting a severe bacterial infection that is life-threatening. The doctors continue to search for the location of the infection and the cure, but so far they have not found it. Every hour counts for him, as every cent counts for his family, who will have to face huge medical bills. We decided to start this fundraising campaign so that we can all raise money and support Octavio's during this difficult time.

(Maestro Brunetti is a distinguished pianist, composer, arranger and educator from Argentina and based in New York. He’s traveled the world playing Argentine tango and his most recent concert was the Octavio Brunetti Tango Orchestra at the Midsummer Night Swing festival at Lincoln Center in this July).

Nuestro amigo OCTAVIO BRUNETTI ingreso a un hospital de NY el 3 de agosto y está luchando cada minuto por sobrevivir a una infección bacteriana muy severa. Los médicos siguen tratando de descubrir donde reside la infección, y como combatirla, pero no encuentran como curarlo todavía. Cada hora cuenta para él, y cada centavo cuenta para su familia, que debe afrontar enormes gastos médicos. Decidimos ofrecer este medio para que todos podamos ayudar a juntar esos fondos y sostener a la familia de Octavio para afrontar este momento tan difícil.

(El Maestro Brunetti es un destacado pianista, compositor, arreglador y docente argentino residente en NY; ha recorrido extensa parte del mundo llevando el tango argentino. El último trabajo realizado en NY fue dirigiendo su orquesta, en el festival "Midsummer Night Swing" en el Lincoln Center de NY en julio de este año).

Thank you for your love and support. Gracias por su amor y apoyo.
