FilarMed Wins Classical:NEXT Innovation Award


The Philharmonic Orchestra of Medellín (FilarMed) was honored with the Classical:Next Innovation Award in May, celebrating forward-thinking music projects around the world. FilarMed was recognized for its work as “an agent of social transformation,” reaching many Colombian communities through its music programs, including their Reconciliation Choir, which brings together victims and ex-combatants of different armed groups in a reincorporation process. One of FilarMed’s most recent concerts, “A Forest of Sounds,” took place on June 18, on the World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought. Check out the impressive short list of all Classical:Next nominees here.
