|The VO Orchestra's Principal Cellist, Heidi Krutzen|
When Heidi got back to Vancouver, she contacted her colleagues here at Vancouver Opera and several other music groups. The result: 126 musical instruments, all on a ship bound for Africa. The instruments should arrive in March and Heidi will be there to receive them and hand them out to the lucky children.
Heidi was interviewed on CBC's As It Happens last night - you can listen to it here. There was also an interview with Heidi in Monday's Vancouver Sun. And here's where you can find out more about Malambo Grassroots.
