Ada's Violin: The Story of the Recycled Orchestra of Paraguay

Amazon.com Rating:

Ada Rios grew up in Cateura, a small town in Paraguay built on a landfill. She dreamed of playing the violin, but with little money for anything but the bare essentials, it was never an option...until a music teacher named Favio Chavez arrived. He wanted to give the children of Cateura something special, so he made them instruments out of materials found in the trash. It was a crazy idea, but one that would leave Ada -- and her town -- forever changed.

Now, the Recycled Orchestra plays venues around the world, spreading their message of hope and innovation. From award-winning author Susan Hood and illustrator Sally Wern Comport comes the extraordinary true tale of the Recycled Orchestra of Paraguay.
