    Message from our Artistic Director…


    “Music is the magical meeting of humankind’s need for intellectual growth and essential spiritual evolution. It is the most honest attempt toward combining these two aspects of the human condition. Nuevo Mundo Festival & Academy takes on the role of being a transformative encounter in our students’ lives, as well as a celebration to our audience. With these words, I welcome you to the Aruba SYmphony Festival 2018.”

    Simon Gollo. ASF Founder and Artistic Director
