During this session, emphasis is placed on preparation for the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra’s auditions (March–November each year), both musically and technically. A technological section will presents tools to create videos and sound recordings, as well as solutions to rehearse together while in different parts of the world. The following section, devoted to professional skills, will deal with communication: i.e. how to make appropriate content for social networks and build a timely strategy. A cultural section will tackle Middle Eastern and Balkan music, and their appropriation by jazz musicians.
The registrations will be open on 07 November.
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).
Medinea On Air aims to provide specific preparation for classical musicians and improvisers who wish to audition for the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra’s symphonic and Medinea Sessions; and more broadly, to enrich young musicians’ musical training. Therefore, in addition to Audition and Competition Preparation, the programme provides three other modules: Digital Technology, Career Development and Human, Social and Entrepreneurial Skills and Aesthetics, Cultures, Identities and Artistic Encounters.
