To New England Conservatory, as a testimony of our highest esteem, affection and eternal gratitude.
We hope that the year 2014 will mark the start of a new stage in our relationship, through which we shall be able to build permanent cooperation and exchange programs in the pedagogic, social and artistic realms. We eagerly hope to celebrate the renewal of our cooperation agreement in a great celebratory event in August 2014.
We hope to maintain an enriching and fruitful connection through the inclusion of a growing number of young students, teachers and experiences.
May God bless our objectives, for the benefit of the musical development of each of our countries and in benefit of our mutual collaborations.
Many thanks, Maestro Woodcock, for your admirable work and your noble support of the Venezuelan children and youth.
