This year the Youth Solidarity Concert, organised by the Colegio Mayor Ayete, reaches a milestone: the twelfth edition. Once again, the city's university students have organised this solidarity initiative with the aim of helping the homeless cared for by Caritas Gipuzkoa. This was highlighted by the head of the Social Commission of the Colegio Mayor Ayete, Miguel Arribas, at the press conference held at Caritas, together with the director of Caritas Gipuzkoa, José Ramón Aramendi.

The concert will take place on Friday 28 February at 20h in the Church of San Vicente and will feature the Orfeón Donostiarra, which will perform aconcert of sacred music, under the baton of conductor Jose Antonio Sainz Alfaro and Gerardo Rifón on the organ. The programme will be based on sacred works by Fauré, Rossini, Mendelsson, Casals, Jenkins, Webber and Leonard Cohen, among others. The soloists will be Julia Blasco, Ane Urrutikoetxea Juncal Baroja and Aroa Guerediain.

"I would like to thank the Colegio Mayor and the students of the school once again this year for their sensitivity and for their concern for the most disadvantaged people, those who are on the streets and whom we take in on a daily basis," said Aramendi.

 The head of the Social Commission of the Colegio Mayor Ayete, Miguel Arribas, highlighted the double function of the event, which on the one hand collaborates with people in disadvantaged situations, and on the other, promotes the participation of young university students in cultural and volunteer events. "The interesting thing is that it is young students who take the lead, and that the project is maintained year after year. I am convinced that on Friday we will start thinking about next year's concert, and that enthusiasm, that desire to make the suffering of others visible, is the most important thing of all," Arribas acknowledged.

 For his part, Javier Pérez, who like Miguel Arribas is a student of Engineering at Tecnun- University of Navarra, says that he is looking forward to organising this initiative because it is a "good opportunity to get out of ourselves, make visible the great work of Caritas, and open up to the city, focusing on those who need it most".

It should be noted that this is the seventh year that the Orfeón has collaborated with this initiative.
