Festival Esmeraldas

Festival Esmeraldas is dedicated to providing unique opportunities for young Latin American classical musicians who do not have the means to travel abroad for festivals of this sort.   

In our first four editions, more than 180 young artists have already benefitted from the work of the festival. They have worked with the world’s most outstanding professional artists and received full-tuition scholarships to do so, and what’s more important is that they’ve done it close to home, at the heart of South America, in Ecuador!   

All of our concerts are open to low-income communities free of charge because we believe music and culture plays an important part in promoting change where it is most needed. 

Your donation will help to secure the visit of world-renowned artists to Ecuador to engage with 40 exceptional talents of the 2019 edition, which will take place from November 15-30, 2019.
