The Abbotsford Youth Orchestra is planning a trip to Scotland in July 2020 and Rafael will be participating in the Sterling Bridge Music Festival, along with choirs and youth orchestras from around the world. Rafael will perform in Abbotsford, Scotland on Canada Day 2020.

Rafael and the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra while on tour will receive coaching from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, and will perform with other international choirs and orchestras.

Each member of the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra must raise $2,250 to participate in the trip. As Rafael has performed for us many times in the past Lifetime Learning is holding a fundraising concert to help to contribute to Rafael’s trip. All proceeds from the fundraising concert will be put towards Rafael’s trip to Scotland.
