Conservatory Foundations School in Dominican Republic

This year The Conservatory Foundations School, lead by Symphony of Nations co-founder, Herrick Colby, had an especially great group of students. Meeting in Dominica Republic, many were returning musicians from last year.  Six of those students from last year have done their Discipleship Training School since we last saw them, preparing them for missions with their music.

The Lord provided many guests musicians to help us.

  • IMPASS, a youth orchestra group returned this year with a team to help.
  • Anna, our daughter, joined us to teach
  • Eileen, who helped us in Norway, came for the last week
  • Members of the Ensemble Christo – Elliot, Cary, Hannah, Rachael and Christine were a great help also

We are so grateful for each and every one who came to teach. Thank you!!









The students went through a wonderful transformation. Many of these kids are from a very difficult situation and are considered ‘at risk’.  To see the change in each of them is a tremendous joy.

A few of them have achieved a skill level where they are ready for a youth music conservatory in Santo Domingo, the capitol city. While this is a great opportunity for them on-going scholoarships are needed.
