John Axelrod

John Axelrod, Music Director of the Royal Symphony Orchestra of Seville, announced that he and his orchestra will offer a charity concert for musicians from Houston who have suffered severe losses due to the hurricane Harvey. The concert will take place on October 10 at Casa Colón in Huelva. « It is estimated that the cost of rebuilding the city amounts to 120 billion dollars, » Axelrod says. « It’s the city I was born in, where my friends are, my family, where my father lives. Many musicians have lost their instruments and thus their way of life. The opera house is closed, many music students have run out of instruments and schools. It is an opportunity to help them from Seville, something that Houston will always remember. »

Huelva, located 100 km southwest of Seville, is a twin city of Houston. All proceeds of the ROSS concert will go to an aid fund for musicians.
