Apu Inka Zampoña Workshop
FREE to any H.o.P.e Student
Study the Zampoña Pan Flute with master musician and founder of the music group Apu Inka, John Zorilla. Connect with the rich history and traditions of South America’s ancient culture, the Inca Empire. Andean music has survived and evolved for centuries. Music tells us as a culture, who we are, where we have been and shapes where we are going. Be a part of this tradition and possibly shape its next chapter. Aurora Theatre will be providing all participants with their own Zampoña at no charge. Upon completion of this intensive, students will be invited to perform in the Teatro Aurora season finale, THE LEGEND OF THE INKA EMPIRE with Apu Inka on the Aurora Mainstage June 11, 2016.

In 2013-2014, 1 out of every 23 Hispanic students in Georgia dropped out of high school. Hispanics had the highest percentage of dropouts in the entire state. Every year, the cycle of dropouts continues. HoPe seeks to destroy this cycle.
The mission of HoPe is to increase the graduation rate among Hispanic high school students through leadership, education, and community service.
