Strings for Cambodia

A fund-raising campaign to support Cambodia’s Royal University of Fine Arts’ dream to launch a National Symphony Orchestra – the first since the Khmer Rouge Genocide.

Our goal is to raise $50,000 to cover the cost of high quality, carbon-fiber classical string instruments – violins, violas and cellos – to form the core of the symphony’s string section, and to be used for teaching purposes at the university.

All carbon-fiber instruments – which will be more durable than wooden instruments in Cambodia’s hot, humid climate – will be provided by Luis & Clark, a Massachusetts company founded by cellist Luis Leguia, emeritus member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
