The Impossible Orchestra

The Impossible Orchestra brings together some of the best soloists in the world who would never normally share a stage.


    Thirty artists from fourteen nationalities join the Impossible Orchestra with a single objective: to support the children and women of Mexico affected by the current situation. The Impossible Orchestra is born from the conviction that music has the power to unite us. No matter our origins, our nationalities or our differences, music creates a universal language of hope in difficult times.

    Music from Mexico to the world; World Aid for Mexico.

    The Impossible Orchestra shows us that in music, as in all aspects of society, we only have to transform the old models to achieve what has never been done before. This ambitious project is the brain child of Mexican conductor Alondra de la Parra.
