In the small town of Cateura, Paraguay, innovative members of the community, as well as the children they are teaching, are teaming up to create instruments from the environment that surrounds them: the landfill their town sits upon. The program, now known as the Recycled Orchestra, originally another branch of the program Sounds of the Earth, gives children the ability to learn an instrument while also recycling the materials around them. Finding that there were more children signed up for the very first music program within the town than the number of traditional instruments in hand, orchestra director Luis Szaran and music teacher Favio Chavez watched as the community came together to create the recycled instruments for them. A cello is made from an oilcan and salvaged wood; violins are created from cans and forks. Instead of falling into gangs or the drug scene, the children of Cateura now have the constructive option of learning to play an instrument such as the cello or violin. They are allowed to create and inspire others, an option that they would not have been given had they not had the support of Szaran, Chavez, and the community around them. This program has brought musical inspiration, while fostering recyclable creativity.
