Description of the project:

The music program at Somos Pacífico in Cali, Colombia, caters to individuals aged 6 to 18, focusing on comprehensive music skill development. It offers individual and group classes encompassing violin, viola, cello, double bass, electric bass, guitar, folk percussion, brass, and woodwinds, encouraging participation in the symphony orchestra. Workshops cover theoretical, technical, and interpretative aspects, fostering cultural identity and psychosocial support. The choir program targets residents of Commune 21, promoting vocal group formation for children, youth, and adults, enhancing vocal technique and psychosocial skills.

Groups are categorized by initiation, intermediate, and advanced levels. The training emphasizes instrument recognition, technical proficiency, posture, and social development. The initiative involves an interdisciplinary team, including social intervention, training, and musical coordinators, along with specialized psychosocial support.

The overarching project goal is the sociocultural integration of the young people of the Comuna 21 through orchestral and vocal-instrumental training. Competencies addressed include technical, cognitive, interpretative, and social skills, aiming for collaboration, empathy, and respect. The team ensures compliance through monitoring, evaluation, communications, administration, and financial management processes.
