GMAF - Discover Music Tour

02.03.2017

Next week starts another activity of the cooperation project GIVE MUSIC A FUTURE. Three young EMCY Prize winners will play the Discover Music Tour through Luxemburg, Germany and Spain: Juan Sanjuan Más, prize winner of Concurso Permanente de Jóvenes IntérpretesJulius Schepansky awarded at Jugend musiziert and Béatrice Picard, prize winner of Concours Luxembourgeois pour Jeunes Solistes

Discover music is not a normal concert tour. The young musicians will work with pupils from public schools with high percentage of migrants. After an intensive preparation done by the professional audience developers of the Flying Gorillas, they will give outreach sessions and evening concerts in Luxembourg, Germany and Spain.

The activity will start in Luxemburg with a 5-days workshop at the UGDA Music School. They will be trained in chamber music and introduced to the work with hard to reach groups. The musicians will be taught to develop a repertoire of structured improvisation and short composed pieces, which can be used in outreach workshops with disadvantaged pupils.

Afterwards the tour continues to Germany (Iserlohn and Osnabrück) and Spain (Barcelona).

The tour will build the capacities of the young musicians to approach a difficult-to-reach audience. It will widen their repertoire including contemporary pieces and they will learn to play in venues different then concert halls. The tour gives them the opportunity to internationalise their careers.

The discover music tour is part of the GIVE MUSIC A FUTURE project and is planned also for 2018.

The Tour is organised in cooperation with UGDA Music School, Jeunesses Musicales Spain and the Flying Gorillas.
