Members of the International Pernambuco Conservation Initiative visit CCO

In addition to IPCI, French and Brazilian bow makers were present. The purpose of the meeting was to raise awareness about the preservation of brazilwood

The Citizen Child Orchestra received this Thursday, October 25, a visit by Yung Chin, the World President of the International Pernambuco Conservation Initiative; John Bennett, President of the institution in the USA; Stphane Tomachot, one of the most outstanding French bow makers, and his daughter Josphine. They were joined by Frans Pareyn, general coordinator of the Plants Association of the Northeast APN; Jacy de Souza, a Brazilian bow maker; and Ayrton Farias, a sworn translator. They got to know the project better and Interacted with our administration and students.

The visit started in the project's luthierie, where the bow makers talked about the process of making the parts with the students and the luthierie teacher, Carlos Alberto Gomes Filho. Yung Chin, who is also an archeologist, stressed the importance of teaching the first steps well: "It is important that they learn well the fundamental steps, the basics, because if they do not learn, they can spend the rest of their lives doing wrong," he said.

The group then proceeded to the auditorium, where John Bennett talked about the importance of brazilwood preservation, linking it to the use of the tree to manufacture musical instruments. They attended a performance by a quintet of CCO musicians with two songs from the national repertoire - "Lamento Sertanejo" by Dominguinhos and "Asa Branca" by Luiz Gonzaga - and concluded the meeting by sharing experiences and knowledge about the craft of a bow maker.
