CEMAN orchestra under CEI patronage

On 22 October, after one week of joint training at the Conservatory of Music Giuseppe Tartini, 35 young musicians of the CEMAN Orchestra from eleven CEI countries performed at the Trieste Opera House "Teatro Lirico Giuseppe Verdi" for the Trieste Next Festival.

The music event - organised in the framework of the CEMAN-Central European Music Academies Network established in 2016, and under the patronage of the CEI -
was conducted by the Bulgarian Director Deyan Pavlov with the participation of the young cellist Momchil Pandev. It offered a rich programme of music by great Central-European composers (Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven) and was replicated in Grožnjan/Grisignana (Croatia) and in Ljubljana (Slovenia).

DSG Ivana Holoubková opened the concert by dedicating the evening of music and joy to those affected by the war in Ukraine. She highlighted that intercultural cooperation was among the CEI priority areas for the protection of cultural heritage, the promotion of cultural tourism and the strengthening of private cultural and creative initiatives, including the musical field. She particularly underlined that the participation of citizens and young people fully met the CEI’s endeavor to promote cooperation among youth.

Established in 2016 under the initiative of the Trieste Conservatory of Music Giuseppe Tartini in cooperation with the CEI, the Central European Initiative, the Orchestra  was created with the aim of promoting talented young musicians from the CEI region, giving them the chance to share professional experience and participate in international music events. It is part of a major cultural project, started with the support of the Italian Ministry of University and Research, General Board for Students and Internationalisation of Higher Education, and co-financed by the Central European Initiative in the framework of the Operational Programme 2021 – 2022 with the Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
