The Barceló Foundation launches the 1st City of Felanitx Music Contest. Promoted and sponsored by the Foundation, organized by the Conservatori Professional de Música de Felanitx and with the collaboration of the Ajuntament de Felanitx, the contest is open to music students living in the Balearic Islands who study flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, French horn, piano, violin, viola, cello, double bass and singing. The first classified will obtain the Barceló Foundation Scholarship, valued at 19,800 euros, to study higher education at the prestigious Reina Sofía Music School in Madrid, for the 2018/2019 academic year, as well as 10,000 euros to cover travel and accommodation expenses.
In the presentation press conference, José Maria Moreno, musical adviser of the Foundation, highlighted the musical and social importance of this contest that aims to become a benchmark for music students of the Balearic Islands. “Currently, there is no scholarship or contest of this kind in our community. Due to its economic endowment and the prize it will award, it will undoubtedly become one of the most important in Spain, “ said Moreno.
For his part, Joan Xamena, Mayor of Felanitx, thanked the Barceló family (originally from the municipality) for the creation of this event since it will place Felanitx as a benchmark in the national music scene. “The Foundation has been aware of the lack of scholarships of this type in the Balearic Islands and we must thank them for creating this contest to help all our students,” said Xamena.
The registration period for all those interested will open next December 15th and, on the weekend of February 9, 10 and 11th, 2018, the name of the student most talented and deserving of the award.
