Haitian Harmony Project
The University of Kentucky opera program has partnered with Alltech to help launch the Haitian Harmony Project in the town of Ouanaminthe, Haiti.
The hope is to put together a choir of about 35 elementary students that will perform during the opening ceremonies of the Alltech-FEI World Equestrian Games and, longer term, tour the world to raise awareness about the poor nation's plight.
