Banda Sinfónica Estudiantil Institución Educativa Neira
 
The featured performance is a concert by the Symphonic Student Band of Neira, Colombia, who will be playing traditional Colombian music, as well as popular tunes. Colombians throughout the world will be celebrating the 200th Anniversary of their Independence, and Colombians and friends of Colombia in Houston will be joining in by attending this concert.
 
The Symphonic Student Band of Neira (Banda Sinfónica Estudiantil Institución Educativa de Neira) is composed of students between the ages of 6 and 17 who are from an area in Colombia that has been highly marginalized and has served as a center of recruitment and insurgent activity for armed groups. Rather than engaging in unlawful activity, they have chosen MUSIC as an alternative. The Band has performed at many venues, and their excellence has been recognized through awards and invitations to perform nationally and internationally. Several members of the Band have received scholarships for musical studies in France.
Produced by the Consulate General of Colombia
