    “Music is the magical meeting of humankind’s need for intellectual growth and essential spiritual evolution. It is the most honest attempt toward combining these two aspects of the human condition. The Aruba Symphony Festival and Academy takes on the role of being a transformative encounter in our students’ lives, as well as a celebration to our audience.

    With these words, I welcome you to the Aruba Symphony Festival and Academy.”

    Simon Gollo. ASFA Founder and Artistic Director
