Ambassador Solano-Lopez gives his Bicentennial address

Paraguay turns 200
On 16 May, the soaring ceiling of Church House near Westminster Abbey resounded to the sounds of the Paraguayan Bicentennial Chamber Orchestra in a concert to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of Paraguay’s Independence, hosted by the Ambassador of Paraguay, Mr Miguel Solano-Lopez. Directed by the acclaimed conductor Luis Szarán, the musical ensemble brought together some of Paraguay’s finest musicians, including gifted youngsters from Paraguay’s ground-breaking ‘Sounds of the Earth’ Project for children. The programme covered a range of Paraguay’s own compositions frm the 19th century to the present, and included works in a variety of styles, notably the harp, and some wonderfully improvised instruments.
