The subject of 2015 documentary, LandfillHarmonic, the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura is the perfect confluence of human resilience, ingenuity and music. The world-famous youth-orchestra has been featured on 60-Minutes. They have been asked to play with renowned musicians for audiences around the globe. This November 2nd and 3rd, as part of a tour called “Music for Technology”, the Orchestra will give a series of concerts in Northeast Florida including local schools. The goal in bringing Recycled Orchestra to Jacksonville and St. Augustine is to inspire and change lives. Not only will the youth orchestra play for public audiences across the region, they will will participate in an exchange of culture, music and technology with local students. In the end, they will return to Paraguay with $30,000 in computer lab equipment to further enhance the lives of children in their village with lessons in technology, coding, artificial intelligence and machine learning. Through the technology provided, students will be able to monitor and resolve contamination of the local drinking water, start businesses, and contribute in a meaningful way to the global economy without the need to leave their rural community. Immediately following their time in Northeast Florida they will travel to Tokyo to play for the launch of a new Swatch product made from recycled materials. Locally the orchestra is hosted by GlobalJax and GRASP Academy. The program is sponsored by Alquimista.Please contact Juan Carlos Villatoro, This email address is being protected from spambots.

Katie and Brian Ernst have spent a decade using music, art and activism to build a worldwide grassroots movement that has not only sold 20,000 albums but has also raised over $120,000 for various causes including victims of Hurricane Katrina, Syrian Refugees, Standing Rock as well as their own 501(c)3 non profit called Journey4YOUth - which has been working in Kenya since 2010. Brian's music is a reflection of what one may not expect from a suburban kid who left the friendly confines of the Midwest in search of understanding and truth. After 49 states and 35 countries - he's still searching. In 2009 he released his first studio album, intentionally entitled Journey4YOUth. Less than three months later, Brian took 7 months off touring to travel around the world with his (soon to be) wife Katie. This "around the world" trip wasn't as glamorous as it sounds. On a shoestring budget, hitchhiking and staying/working/volunteering with locals, they traveled from the South Pacific up through Southeast Asia and finally to Africa, where they lived in Kaswanga Village, Kenya for 3 months. There they dreamed and worked to put together a plan that they're still working on today.

Lexie Bristol, Three Hearts Dance Artistic Director, has always had a heart for her visions to be fully expressed with those that are bold enough to show life in a raw and creative way. While studying dance at Florida State College at Jacksonville, Bristol created a piece called “5 Hearts” based off of Gary Chapman's book, “The Five Love Languages." Little did she know that this story would be the foundation of a journey of storytelling through dance.  In 2016, God changed the course for THD by reconnecting Bristol with old dance friends, Erica Morris and Lisa Pellittiere. In the first true season they produced three concept videos and created the basis of what Three Hearts Dance is. In 2017, Lexie took on the owner and director position of THD and the mission grew. During it’s 2nd season THD focused on BOLD beauty discovering what it means to be fearfully and wonderfully made. In the fall of 2018, THD entered a shift. With a zeal to produce and director, Bristol is now taking THD into season four with a new intentionality.
