Medinea On Air is an online learning programme that aims to provide specific preparation for classical musicians and improvisers who wish to enrich their musical training. This programme is free upon registration and for all young artists -instrumentists, composers and conductors- students, professionals, researchers and the curious from the Euro-Mediterranean region and above!
This last session is devoted to more general perspectives in terms of the career development of young professional musicians. Musicians are introduced to the practice of orchestral conducting and to other notions related to artistic leadership: e.g. gender equity, and creation/collaboration with indie labels. Participants are presented with traditional Iberian and classical repertoires, and with the idea of musical dialogue — i.e. between electronic and acoustic instruments, and between different Mediterranean music influences. The topics are discussed with young artists from the Medinea programme.
Medinea On Air is a European Union Erasmus+ funded programme that unites six partners from the Mediterranean region: the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence (France), the Ente Musicale di Nuoro (Italy), ARC Research and Consultancy (Malta), the Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa (Portugal), the University of Ljubljana – Academy of Music (Slovenia), and the Istanbul Technical University (Turkey).
In addition to “Audition and Competition Preparation”, the Medinea On Air programme provides three other modules: “Digital Technology”, “Career Development and Human, Social and Entrepreneurial Skills” and “Aesthetics, Cultures, Identities and Artistic Encounters”.
4 broadcasting sessions are scheduled over a year with 38 live interactive webinars giving the floor to renowned artists and high-qualified pedagogues. They are free and open to all upon registration and will last about 40 minutes each.
