Marco Ramirez, Altviool

I have been playing along these last years different violas from my school or friends. But the time of having my own instrument had come. After searching for a viola among several countries, I finally found what I was looking for. Besides of being a beautiful instrument, this viola had such a warm and deep sound. It captived me from the very beginning and I did not want to keep looking. Unfortunately, as a student, I was not able to pay the value of my desired instrument. However, I could not give up now. It was then when I heard about the work that Stichting Eigen Muziekinstrument carries on helping young musicians to get instruments that they cannot afford. And that was how I acquired the viola of my dreams.

I will be always extremely grateful to SEM and Ms. Aleid van Beuningen for all their support, attention, generosity and for carrying out this valuable work to help young musicians.
