Rafael and the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra were to be on tour this summer in Scotland, receive coaching from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, and perform with other international choirs and orchestras in the Sterling Bridge Music Festival. With all the restrictions limiting gatherings and thus performance opportunities, it seemed like a great time for Rafael to start his YouTube channel. On his channel there is some piano as well as a composition written and performed by him, with more to come. If you enjoy the channel, please feel free to send it to your members and share it with anyone you like.
Rafael looks forward to a time he can come perform for your organization in person again.
Rafael has won many awards for his instrumental virtuosity as well as for his compositions, including first place in the 12 and under category in the strings division of the 2017 Vancouver International Music Competition. Rafael is a member of the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra and performs regularly around the Fraser Valley.
