A piano for the Guillermo Tomás Music Conservatory in Guanabacoa

Hello friends. Please help us to restore the grand piano at the Guillermo Tomas Music Conservatory in Havana, Cuba.

The Guillermo Tomas Music Conservatory, located in the town of Guanabacoa in Havana, is one of the most prestigious music schools in Cuba. Founded in 1961, the school has trained many internationally-recognised musicians, such as Roberto Fonseca, Leonel Morales, and Roberto Carlos, among many others.

Despite the prestige and success of the conservatory, it has not been exempt from the financial hardships faced by the rest of the country. Its only grand piano is an old Estonia. Donated to the school in the 1980s, the piano is now in very poor condition due to its continual use over the past 30 years.

I know, from my own experience, the dedication, love and professionalism that the professors of the Conservatory have to train new musical talent. My own career as a pianist began there along with my passion for music. My intention with this project is to contribute to the education and creation of the next generation of musicians and composers.

As some of you may know, we recently raised funds to buy a second-hand grand piano for the Amadeo Roldan Music Conservatory . That piano is now in the school thanks to the support of hundreds of people from all over the world.

We hope to have your support again for this second project. However, this time, we thought it would be more cost effective to restore the existing piano rather than shipping one to Cuba.

To repair the piano at Guillermo Tomas, we are looking to raise £3,000. This sum is required for the purchase of imported parts from Germany, shipping costs to Cuba, and the repair and restoration of the instrument.

Thank you for your support of this worthwhile project.

Hola amigos. Ayúdanos a reparar el piano Estonia del Conservatorio Guillermo Tomás. Necesitamos recaudar fondos para comprar las piezas y reparar el piano Estonia.

El conservatorio Guillermo Tomás se encuentra en Guanabacoa, La Habana y es uno de los más importantes del país. Allí se han educado un gran número de estudiantes, convertidos hoy en reconocidos músicos en Cuba e internacionalmente.

A pesar del prestigio y desempeño del conservatorio, este no ha estado exento de las dificultades que atraviesa el país. El único piano de cola de la escuela marca Estonia, se encuentra en muy mal estado. Este piano fue importado en los 80s y el intenso uso del instrumento ha hecho inevitable el desgaste de sus piezas.

Conozco por experiencia propia la dedicación, el amor y el profesionalismo de los profesores del Conservatorio para formar nuevos talentos. Allí comenzó mi carrera como pianista y mi pasión por la música. Mi intención con este proyecto es contribuir a la formación y enseñanza de futuros músicos y compositores.

Con nuestro último proyecto (Send a piano to Cuba) Envía un piano a Cuba, gracias al apoyo de cientos de amigos y amigas logramos donar un piano de cola al conservatorio Amadeo Roldan . Esperamos poder contar nuevamente con tu apoyo para este segundo proyecto.

Para reparar el piano del Guillermo Tomás necesitaremos recaudar £3000. Esta suma cubre el costo para comprar las piezas importadas desde Alemania, el costo del envió a Cuba, y la reparación y restauración del instrumento.

Muchas gracias por adelantado.
