Help Fede Record His Composition

Federico was 13 years old when I received a call and was asked to guess who was playing Chopin in the background. I thought it was my sister. I was told it was Fede. I asked, “when did he start taking lessons?” and I was told, “he never took lessons, he taught himself from YouTube”. I was shocked and impressed and my husband I made the decision to encourage and support the development of Fede’s given talents for his benefit and for all of us to have a chance to be delighted with his creative gifts.

At 15 Federico gave his first concert and throughout the past 9 years, he has evolved becoming a composer, a member of several performing choirs, and even had 5 minutes of fame as one of his choirs shared the stage with The Rolling Stones in 2016. He is continuously improving himself and working hard at balancing life in a country (Argentina) where making a living is at times so hard that one could get discouraged and leave behind all dreams and visions. He has not, he juggles multiple hats to keep doing what he loves.

He has been selected to have his original work “The White Locust Tree” recorded and be part of the New Choral Voices Vol. 3 by Ablaze Records, which is partially subsidized – his rate is US$431 per minute and his piece is 4:30 minutes long for a total of U$2,000. The funds will be used to pay for his original piece to be recorded and be part of NCV Vol3 and he needs to pay in 3 installments November 1 and December 1, 2017, and January 15, 2018.

To me, his aunt, supporting this young man’s dreams is giving a chance to a new generation of creative composers and performers to be known and seen. It is to know that we are keeping the Performing Arts vibrant and accessible to upcoming new talented people.

I would be extremely grateful for you supporting Federico’s chance -- and grateful for the possibility of being able to buy his recording in the future.

Thank you.
