The second transnational staff meeting of the Singing and Making Melody in your Heart project took place in Istanbul, Turkey, from January 13 to 16, 2020. In it we have monitored the objectives and schedule of the project and prepared the great meeting of the youth chorus of all participating countries, Turkey, Greece, Portugal, Spain and Italy, in the great festival organized by our coordinator, The Kavala Music School, will be held in that city in the month of May.
The municipality of KAVALA, the Holy Metropolis of Philippi, Neapolis and Tassos, the region of Eastern of Macedonia and Trace, and The School of Music of Kavala invite you to Kavala from 07 to 11 May 2020 to the Festival co-órganized in honour to Apostle St. Paul.
SINGING AND MAKING MELODY IN YOUR HEART
Envoy of hope Mikis Theodorakis.
AIFED has hosted this meeting in which we had the first contact and prepared together the strategies and tools to achieve the important objectives of this project. We have also congratulated the quality of the partnership and the good working environment
Our idea was reflected in a 2-year schedule of the Project, divided also in four (4) semesters. Previously, the Committee had to answer the most crucial question: what does the entire European and much more the global community have in common, that already preexists in any local or regional environment and so it could be directly accessible? How any local cultural tradition could be the entrance to the history and culture of the whole humanity? Which monuments or historical figures of our Greco-Roman and Christian world could be presented as symbols of universal values? As the European school community living in the postmodern age do, we need to rediscover, share and rethink of our ancient, medieval and modern heritage? However, we are looking for the meeting point of all cultures, the simplest international language. It is no other than the Art itself.
Our schedule consists of four (4) major Semesters, each of which has its distinct requirements and goals. During a Semester, teachers and students will have to conclude a specific program (courses, workshops, educational programs etc.), which is to be presented afterwards through a festival and a scientific conference. All programs are addressed directly to the involved school’s community, but also to the broader community through the mass media and social media.
