The Music for Peace Foundation is hosting the second Sistema Europe Orchestra Camp in collaboration with the Foundation for Culture and Arts (IKSV) as of tomorrow until Aug. 22 in Istanbul. The camp was held for the first time in Vienna as a part of the 2013 Salzburg Festival. The event is taking place at Bogaziçi University with the participation of 200 children and trainers from nine European countries. Young attendees have the chance to perform music and rehearse on an international platform for a week.
The upcoming music camp will be carried out under the conductorship of Bruno Campo and Etienne Abelin, a member of the Bologna-based Orchestra Mozart and the Lucerne Festival Orchestra. In addition to the Music for Peace Orchestra, the camp is accommodating 200 children between the ages of 10 and 19 from Austria, Denmark, the U.K., Sweden, Italy, Portugal, Croatia and Switzerland. More importantly, the event includes a special program, El Sistema Model-based Training Camp, to educate future El Sistema trainers. Founded in 1975, El Sistema is a publicly funded voluntary sector music education program in Venezuela.
More than 50 invited trainers have come, not only from different cities in Turkey, but also Peru, Iran, Venezuela, the U.K., Hungary, Croatia, Portugal, Italy, Sweden and Switzerland. Future trainers of Music for Peace will attend the trainer's program as well. Following a one-week intensive workshop, the Sistema Europe Orchestra will perform on Aug. 21 at 8:00 p.m. at Bakırköy Municipality Leyla Gencer Opera and Culture Center. Two hundred young musicians will display the result of their hard work to music lovers free of charge. The inspiring orchestra will perform Tchaikovsky's "Slavonic March," acclaimed Mexican composer Arturo Marquez's "Danzón No. 2," Italian composer Gioachino Rossini's "William Tell Overture," Mozart's "Eine kleine Nachtmusik," the first movement of Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg's "Holberg Suite" and the ninth variation "Nimrod" from English composer Edward Elgar's "Enigma Variations" with Campo as conductor. The third iteration of the camp will be held next year in Sweden.
