Espwa visitor Gladys is a former opera singer, who spent most of her career performing in Belgium. For all of our aspiring artists at Espwa, working with her was an excellent opportunity to enhance their singing techniques. Any training in the arts is very rare in Haiti. The schools don't offer music or art classes like they do in the United States, so even our best singers learned basic music-reading and piano skills with Gladys.
Gladys and her students even performed "Amazing Grace" for the attendants of weekday morning mass. How exciting to see Espwa students inspired and dedicated to improving their musical expression!
