The La Mesa Sunrise Rotary Club is hosting Diego Carneiro, Master Cellist and orchestra director for La Orcestra Joven del Ecuador    (Youth Orchestra of Ecuador) at their December 3, 2021 regular meeting to provide an opportunity for Rotarians to hear his music and learn his story.  Diego is participating in a global grant between the Rotary Club of Colville (Washington State - District 5080) and the Rotary Club of Quito Ecuador de Quito Valle Interoce√†nico and is on a fundraising tour to assist in funding the global grant (#2128505). 
 
Diego has flown to Washington DC, and will be visiting here in San Diego before returning to Ecuador. Diego created his own non-profit foundation called AmaZonArt to aid young refugees fleeting Venezuela to Ecuador who were once encouraged to study classical music in their home countries, to acquire instruments, and to join together to create an orchestra so they can begin to earn a living.
 
Rotarians who are interested in hearing Diego play can do so by either attending the La Mesa Sunrise Rotary Club meeting which is held at Hooleys in Grossmont Center at 7:20 am or via their Facebook Live meeting occurring simultaneously on the club's Facebook page.   A light breakfast is served at 7:15 am and costs $15.  Please notify the club if you plan on attending and would like breakfast.
