Ada's Violin. Photo by Chris BennionJoin us on Monday, December 18 at 10:00am for a special performance of Ada’s Violin: The Story of the Recycled Orchestra of Paraguay at The Center Theatre (305 Harrison Street). After the performance, kids can make their own instruments with Seattle ReCreative.

This story by Susan Hood is an extraordinary true tale of the Recycled Orchestra of Paraguay, an orchestra made up of children playing instruments built from recycled trash. Ada Ríos dreams of playing the violin, but only until a music teacher named Favio Chávez arrives does she fulfill her dreams. The show is performed in English and Spanish and runs 35-40 minutes.

Adapted and directed by Book-It Director of Education Annie DiMartino with Angelica Duncan-Basile, Jordi Montes, and Carlos Wagener-Sobrero. Tickets to the performance and workshop are only $10 each. Seating is limited. Recommended for K-6. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
