Under the talented direction of Witheny Gauthier Bellantine, the music program at St.Andre’s is vibrant. The school boasts an orchestra, band and several choirs. The demand for participation far exceeds the supply of instruments, as most families cannot afford to acquire such “luxuries”. Whenever we are able, through donated instruments or targeted donations, we send instruments on the twice yearly food container shipment.
In addition, the school benefits from the dedication and support through the annual Summer Music Camp organized by John Moon. John is the Director of Orchestras and Chamber Music at St. Stephen’s Episcopal School in Austin. He travels extensively to conduct, perform and teach, and has established a music school and summer program at St. Andre’s in Hinche, Haiti. He also maintains an active performing schedule with many organizations, including the Austin Symphony Orchestra and the Austin Lyric Opera.
