CARACAS – Singers Miguel Bose and Juanes met with Jose Antonio Abreu, founder of Venezuela’s National System of Youth and Children’s Orchestras, to discuss plans for holding the third Peace Without Borders concert in Caracas.
The two international stars will visit the headquarters of the award-winning “System,” as it is known, again next month to work out additional details, a spokesman for the Simon Bolivar Musical Foundation told Efe.
“We are very impressed with all this,” Juanes said of Abreu’s organization, Caracas daily El Nacional reported.
Bose said he and Juanes expect to bring together “15 artists representative of Europe and Latin America” for the third edition of the Peace Without Borders concert, according to the newspaper.
The concert is also to feature the System’s Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra and acclaimed Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel.
The first Peace Without Borders concert took place in 2008 on the Colombia-Venezuela border, while the second was staged the following year in Havana. EFE
