Sistema Europe Youth Orchestra 2020 Announces Location and Requests Information
The Sistema Europe Youth Orchestra (SEYO) 2020 Artistic & Organizing Committee, in partnership with Fundación Acción Social por la Música in Madrid, announces that the 6th SEYO Summer Camp will take place in Madrid, probably July 4-12. Planning is at an early stage, but they need to know which programs have interest in attending. Please follow this link and complete the questionnaire before November 25, 2019. The questionnaire takes 15 minutes to complete and does not require firm commitments at this time. Those unfamiliar with SEYO can get a sense of its history of powerful impact and why it is worth attending.
SEYO leaders write: “As in past years, we recommend involving young musicians who, besides being fit for the repertoire, either particularly deserve to experience an SEYO camp due to specially helpful behavior (such as, for example, peer-to-peer teaching throughout the year) or who could benefit particularly from attending an SEYO camp. Also, we recommend involving young musicians who can be expected to bring back the enthusiasm, motivation, dedication, and know-how to their national programs and inspire their peers. This year, for the first time, SEYO will involve a ‘Beginners’ group.”
