Description:
Please join us for a Gift of Song in benefit of Mateo, the son of Joel Vasquez and
Laura Reyes. Many of you know Joel as the organist at various churches in Oaxaca
and Tlacachuaya. Laura sings with the Coro de la Ciudad and runs her own business,
as well as being a full-time caretaker for Mateo. Mateo was born in June of
2016 with a very rare genetic mutation that causes Cardio-Facial-Muscular Syndrome.
He has had several major surgeries, is on a feeding tube, and suffers epilectic
seizures requiring expensive imported medicine. The friends and family of Mateo
have been organizing events a couple of times a year for the last 3 years to help
the family with expenses, and this year we are combining the benefit with the first
formal Gift of Song of Oaxaca Canta, the Oaxacan chapter of Threshold Singers,
International. We will be offering a selection of songs for healing and emotional
support for this family. Please join us for an afternoon of quiet, healing music for
the soul. It will benefit all of us!
