In 2019 classical music concerts and tours cannot use the standard format that was used in the past. They need to be more stimulating and interactive in order to attract the spectator. That is exactly what Discover music tour is going to do this year.
In March, EMCY in collaboration with UGDA Music School and the “Flying Gorillas” have planned a tour through Luxembourg and Germany in which young musicians from different countries are going to play in concerts, learn about classical music and its practice nowadays. Through workshops and sessions in local schools, the musicians will get in contact with refugees and kids with fewer opportunities and transmit them the cultural importance of music. This series of events are part of the project ‘SOLIDARITY IN TIMES OF CRISIS’, co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
The EMCY prize winners that will participate this year in Discover Music tour are: Kiron Atom Tellian (Piano) winner of the Österreichische Jugendmusikwettbewerbe Prima la Musica and Peter Toperczer International Piano Competition Košice, Georgios Banos (Violin) winner of the Österreichische Jugendmusikwettbewerbe Prima la Musica and Hy-Huu Dang (Saxophone) winner of the Concours Luxembourgeois pour Jeunes Solistes & European Competition for Young Soloists (national). These three artists will be accompanied by the EMCY and UGDA staff during the activities and be guided and supported by the professional audience developers Nigel Warrack and Susana Garcia. The tour will take place from the 4th until the 13th of March in Luxemburg, Cologne and Iserlohn.
