Seven Spirit is an NPO in downtown Cebu, the 2nd largest city in the Philippines. It offers free music lessons to children aged 8-18 and has its own orchestra, which is invited to perform at festivals. It was set up by Hiroaki Tanaka, from Japan, as a way to give children on the street a talent to which they can dedicate themselves. Older kids can audition for university scholarships and the chance to go on to higher education. Discover how music is shaping a new future at Seven Spirit.
