students in Panama

During 2003, Kenneth Sarch was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to start a new symphony orchestra for the city of Santa Cruz in Bolivia. The project was co-sponsored by the Asociacion Pro Arte Y Cultura (APAC). The new orchestra, Orquesta Sinfonica Juvenil de Santa Cruz, proved to be a huge success and is still going strong. It has begun its third season of concerts in Santa Cruz, a city of almost two million people. This music project attracted front-page newspaper attention, television coverage, and standing ovations. 

Dr. Sarch has been invited five times to conduct the Panama National Youth Orchestra. His music projects in Panama were sponsored by both the United States Information Agency Arts America Program and the Panama Asociacion Nacional de Conciertos.

In 1992, Dr. Sarch conducted the String Orchestra of the National Music Conservatory in Amman in Jordan and at the same time was invited to conduct His Majesty King Hussein’s Symphony Orchestra of the Jordanian Armed Forces.

In March of 1992, Kenneth Sarch traveled as a Fulbright Scholar to Belo Horizonte in Brazil where he was a Visiting Professor at Federal University of Minas Gerais for 6 months. In Belo Horizonte, Dr. Sarch started a string program of young students while he trained 19 Brazilian university students in the techniques and methods of teaching strings in classes to young students.
