Casa Mediterráneo and its resident orchestra Ensemble Casa Mediterráneo announce the 'Casa Mediterráneo Musical Interpretation Award' to which young guitar players between the ages of 18 and 25 born or nationalized in any country of the Mediterranean space can apply until September 1st. The award, which in its initial edition is dedicated to the guitar, has as its main objective to promote and serve as a motivational stimulus for those performers who are carving out a professional path in the world of music. Young people born between January 1, 1998 and December 31, 2004, from the following countries may apply for the award: Spain, France, Monaco, Italy, Malta, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Greece , Turkey, Syria, Cyprus, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine (Gaza Strip), Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco.
The general director of Casa Mediterráneo, Andrés Perelló, points out that "the musical aspect is one of the basic pillars of the entity, not only because of the permanence and activity of the Ensemble Casa Mediterráneo directed by maestro Ignacio García-Vidal, who is already a benchmark, but also because of the activities we have done with the Diplomatic Council and the different concerts we are doing with Capella de Ministrers and with other groups of different modalities and musical characteristics. And one of the ways of doing public diplomacy in the Mediterranean basin is culture, which allows us a permanent dialogue between different social groups from the various countries that make it up”.
For his part, the artistic director of the Ensemble Casa Mediterráneo, Ignacio García-Vidal, indicates that there will be three prizes: the first, endowed with 2,000 euros; the second, with €1,500 and the third, with €1,000. In addition, the first prize winner will be presented with a guitar valued at €1,500, courtesy of the Sulayr guitar brand.
