After participating in the prelude to the 2018 World Cup in Russia the tenor Juan Diego Flórez said that one of his dreams is for the Symphony Orchestra for Peru (Sinfonía por el Perú) to open a World Cup championship.
Flórez gave a concert in Russia yesterday where he shared his story in the music world and his wish to “demonstrate the journey” that his orchestra has had, according to information from La República.
“I see myself reflected in them,” he said about the members of the orchestra, dedicated to helping children who live at risk. “It’s a great pride, you get goosebumps. There are 7 thousand children, but we want them to be one million“, he added, as you can read in the media.
Currently, Sinfonía por el Perú is formed by children of 5 and 6 years old. This project is a program of social inclusion that uses music as a tool for change.
Regarding his presentation in Russia, the tenor said he was very happy to have seen Peruvians everywhere he went. “It really seemed like there were only Peruvian fans”, he said to La República, sharing also his wish to someday inaugurate a soccer World Cup with his orchestra. “Why not? This orchestra has all the qualities to do it. This is our musical selection of Peru, this selection will never disappoint”, said Flórez.
