Sequoia saxophone was born from a dream, an intuition and the great passion of Roberto Buttus, owner of the homonym workshop, who after a long experience of wind instruments repair, has decided to "put himself in the front-line" by creating an original instrument closer both to professional musicans'requirements and to beginners equally moved by the beauty of music.

Alessandro Leo & Musicalmente Abili

ALEX LEO 2 BISWe are pleased to present an event particularly important for our Sequoia artist Alessandro Leo who is personally introducing it:

"WHEN THE SCHOOL TEACHES MUSIC... THE MUSIC CREATES ALL THE REST". It's known that all musical activities positively affect kids with disabilities. Not only music creates relationships but also stimulates creativity, helps them to freely express themselves by increasing their self-esteem... music consolidate self-confidence, socialisation and helps to overcome all frailties.

Since 2012 Alessandro Leo has been working with Prof. Ilario Carrer and all his staff to create events aiming at sensitizing music and disability.

You are all invited next Wednesday December 3rd at 20:30 at the Teatro Busan in Mogliano Veneto (TV) for the concert "MusicalmenteAbili".

Thanks Alessandro for your sensitivity and attention ... because "what we do is just a drop in the ocean, but if we do not do it the ocean will have a drop less".
