The national festival “Music unites schools” is back from 15 to 20 May
Translation by Giulia Lombardo
The new appointment with the music at school week, organized by the National Committee for the practical learning of Music for all students of the Ministry of Education and Merit and by INDIRE, is from 15 to 20 May.
During the days of the festival, which will be inaugurated on Monday 15 by a conference organized by USR Sicily at the Politeama Theater in Palermo, INDIRE will offer streaming concerts organized by schools and top-quality online training events on its dedicated portal, with the participation of artists, researchers, neuroscientists, teachers, pedagogues, foundations, associations, all united by music passion. Webinars, seminars and concerts will be a precious opportunity to reflect on the value of music as a tool for integration and a universal language that unites and makes you grow.
The programme of training events will be available online from 21 April on the “Music unites schools” website.
Take part in the festival!
Until 17 April, schools of all levels can already begin to take an active part in the festival by sharing their videos of performances, practices and innovative experiences created in the field of music education in the 2022-2023 school year, individually or online.
Performances by students and teachers in the following formations are eligible to participate: soloists, instrumental ensembles and choirs, ensembles of rhythm, body percussion, theatre-music, music and movement, and dance groups and soloists belonging to the schools.
The performances may concern music from every era, style and genre, sound landscape, sound engineering, sound video art, word song activities, and may be implemented in an interdisciplinary form.
The videos, with a maximum duration of ten minutes (and a maximum of 5 videos for each institute), made by the schools in compliance with data protection legislation, can only be sent by the head teachers or their delegates through the online form available here.
There are two transmission methods: via a link to a school channel or an audio/video repository (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) or via a hypertext link to a file repository used by the school (Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, etc.).
All submitted contributions will be published by INDIRE on the festival website, with the aim of creating a shared, original and varied heritage of music learning experiences.
