The choirs Voximix and Voximini of the Regional Conservatory of Castelo Branco will burn a CD of works by the composer Sérgio Azevedo. The texts are from Alice Vieira, António Nobre, Joana Raposo and the composer himself. The recording and associated works will be produced by composer Carlos Marecos and the finalization will be the responsibility of the Movimento Patrimonial pela Música Portuguesa (MPMP). We are all looking forward to recording and we really need your donation to reach our go...
Since the beginning, I always tried to work with children works by Portuguese authors. However, it is not easy to find sheet music for young children who are not traditional or popular music. It was after discovering the AVA Editions, that I discovered the composer Sérgio Azevedo. In recent years we have premiered many of his works.
At the end of last school year, Sérgio Azevedo offered me the opportunity of recording a CD with only his works. And voila, after the initial surprise, the strength and energy started to have a specific direction: record a CD of classical music for Portuguese child. But this is a dynamic project that involves children and young people, parents and families in general and the school of regular education. We intend to create a product that reaches all teachers seeking to offer their students quality works of Portuguese repertoire.
We certainly have a major issue and difficult overtaking: funding. After contacting all institutions that I remembered and have always received a "no" as an answer, I feel a revolt inside that encourages me to continue. I'm tired of hearing about the crisis as justification for not acting! So, we’ve decided to share with you our situation and seek the help and support that we need. The amount we request is not at all sufficient, but will help. On behalf of CRCB, my students and myself, our thanks!
