Our History

Our life has always been linked to music, since children we knew that this would accompany us along the way. There are many sacrifices that musicians have to make in order to realize our professional career, but there are also many satisfactions that we get in return.

Friends, culture, love of art, expression, sensitivity and many experiences that have made our life something magical and wonderful. Music has united us for many years and continues to do so, and it is for this reason that we can only be grateful to what you have given us in return.

This is why, in 2012, the clarinetist Francisco Antonio Garcia and the pianist Carmen Esteban, imagine a dream that allows the diffusion of music through education, interpretation, creation, and research. .. of interaction with other arts. And they put into operation a project that becomes this Foundation.

From their modest creation, they have spread the music through unique spaces, they have realized diverse productions with other scenic arts, they have helped young people to relate in a different way with the music, they have given scholarships and promoted to young talents, they have opened their library to Young researchers.

We imagine a place where the coexistence with music, with art, with culture is the very essence of life. Something to be able to offer to the society of the nearest way, more cared, more accompanied. Without understanding why … simply to enjoy it.
