I want to take this opportunity to recognize and recommend American Children’s Orchestras for Peace. ACOP keep children away from unhealthy patterns and those dangerous idle times in after school hours when they may be prone to getting involved with street gangs and other violent activities. In the at-risk communities served by ACOP, after school hours are the most dangerous time for children to be outside in terms of becoming unintentional victims of community or street violence.

It is just a matter of walking through one of the classrooms at Jose Marti Park in Little Havana, or other sites in Little Haiti, Hialeah, Overtown, etc. to see how these kids enjoy and learn at the same time.

My 2 children participate in the American Children’s Orchestras for Peace (ACOP) and I am also a parent volunteer for their many events.

It is with gratitude that I write to you in the hope of impacting your decision to keeping this program open and making it available to all children who
do not have the possibility of learning to play an instrument, discover a hidden talent or simply getting that “push” to explore and excel in music.

My daughter played the violin and my son plays the Cello now for over 5 years. When he first came to the program, we did not even know what a Cello was. Thanks to the good eyes and ears of the ACOP teachers, my son won a scholarship to study privately at the Miami Conservatory of Music. At present, he 2 scholarships and divides his time between 2 institutions; he is only 12 years old and we were blessed by having the opportunity of discovering his gift of music at an early age.

American Children’s Orchestra made all this possible for us and we are forever indebted to them. This program needs to grow and reach more children in under-privilege areas but they can not do it without the support of organizations and people like you. We need your help.
Gratefully,
Lorenza Ortiz

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hire more teachers, lease a building with many rooms to divide the beginners from the intermediate and advanced children, a place to call our own. I would buy more microphones, stands and a really good sound system.

We know that Art education is an important part of children's development, because it teaches them teamwork, discipline, and personal achievement in order to take you to the next level in life. American Children's Orchestras for Peace provides underprivileged children with opportunities to expand their knowledge and open doors to their future. ACOP has a wonderful music program. Please help us, so they can help our children!

American Children’s Orchestras for Peace, Inc. (ACOP) is an extraordinary program. I have seen many examples of help based groups in the past however; I have long been impressed by the diligence and work ethic of this non-profit. I understand that they requested people to go on line and give opinions about the program and as a Board Member I jumped at the chance.

ACOP is an outstanding organization with true professionalism and love for children. They are able to successfully teach the children about music, mentor them on life issues, and give them pride in being who they are.
In the spirit of love, I hope others
also give to keep the program as a positive… for peace.

As a parents, my wife and I are very grateful for this program. We met the teachers and ACOP Staff and they are amazing! My boys loved your classes from the start and never grew bored. ACOP has helped them get organized, motivated, and above all, interested in learning, confidence in what they do, which is no small feat. My whole family appreciates ACOP for helping our sons (and us!)

Thank you for all your hard work.

This is an outstanding program! My son always had a passion for music since he was smaller but due the the economic situation I couldn't afford to pay for classes. When we heard about this program in his school I automatically signed him up. He has attended for two years and I must admit that he has improved in school as well as at home with grades and behavior! I'm amazed and extremely thankful Thank you so much ACOP!!!

Alez Gonzalez-Government Affairs Director for WM
For several years, I have collaborated with American Children's Orchestras for Peace as an active donor. I truly appreciate what they do for the children of Miami, and recognize the influence that the program has in the life of the parents,
families and poor neighborhoods.

If you are thinking about donating to a worthwhile organization that works for the community and the children, please consider American Children's Orchestras for Peace.

I am a witness of the hard work, tenacity and love they put forth in the final product: the children.

I am very pleased and honored to have joined American Children's Orchestras for Peace. Their classes and support were available immediately! My twin daughters have not only gained knowledge within the music classes provided, but respect within themselves. ACOP has helped them develop positive social skills and continues to be an amazing experience for my daughters and me. Very satisfied with my children's progress! I greet with affection towards ACOP. Thank you for changing our lives.
