"Sounds of Peace-Vol.2" Musical Exchange for Peace
Start date: Mar 1, 2014,

The Musical exchange “Sounds of Peace-Vol. 2” aims at bringing together 60 young musicians from 10 countries (UK (Northern Ireland), Poland, Italy, Portugal, Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, Belarus, Ukraine and Malta) to create and play music together and to promote peace. The musical youth exchange “Sounds of Peace-Vol. 2” is a continuation/follow up of the Exchange which took place in Armenia in July 2013. The excitement of the participants engaged in the Vol. 1 was so high that they got engaged in the preparation of Vol. 2 from the very first day and some of them will be part of the Vol. 2 as well. Objectives of the exchange are:- To share the music and musical culture of each other’s countries and each other’s understanding of peace - To play music together and to think of interesting compositions that will help the public to support the idea of peace- To perform in front of their peers from other countries in general and from Armenia in particular- To create a common song for the final performance During the nine days the participants will share their music with each other, and will merge the bands or will create new bands and will practice for a final performance. Also they will have chance to meet local musicians and to create partnership. During the exchange they will have two jam sessions in contemporary art centers in Yerevan and one big final concert which was a great success last year. As this year we are hosting 60 people we believe that there is a great need for an advance planning visit to go over all the details of the exchange and to assure its success.The participants of the last year exchange were engaged in the preparation of the Vol. 2 from the very beginning. They are hoping that this exchange will grow into a big festival one day. The exchange is planned to take place from 19-28 July, 2014 in Sevan, Armenia and it will be hosted by Civic Forum NGO from Armenia.
