The Festival Europa Cantat XVIII Torino 2012 is pleased to present the project "Waiting for Europa Cantat with schools" that will involve school realities of Torino offering them a one-day mini-festival, modelled on the structure and spirit of the summer appointment.
The initiative, first conceived as a one day event, has collected more participation than the most optimistic expectations, therefore the program offers two more dates to allow all those who have requested it, to take part in the project.
The structure of the two days is the following:
Wednesday the 6th and Thursday the 7th of June, 2012, at the Sermig (Piazza Borgo Dora, 61 - 10152 Torino).
Time: 9.30 am to 3.30 pm
In the morning there will be a music workshop proposed by Europa Cantat, held by Roberta Paraninfo. After a quick lunch, the afternoon will be dedicated to short musical concert presentations of the work done by each class during the year. The performances will be directed solely to the participating classes, in the view of a mutual exchange, without the presence of an external audience. Each school will have a space that can freely set up to perform at their best.
Six Schools are taking part in the project with enthusiasm, for a total of 400 students:
• Primary School G. Vidari
• Primary School G.Cena
• First Grade Secondary School C. Nigra
• Primary School C. Casalegno
• Primary School I. Alpi – Plesso Perotta
• Primary School I.C. Salvemini
The project leaders are Eleonora Roba and Francesca Sartorio
