The Music Festival "bienal musica hoje" in Curitiba, Brazil has been taking place now :-) It's a wonderful contemporary music festival with young essential members who are great musicians and composers.
The board members and the audience have high sense, they are very open to listen new music and to discuss about contemporary music.
Our "ensemble cross.art" has been there in 2011 and 2013.
Thank you very much to the Goethe Institut
and to the Consulate-General of Japan in Curitiba for the great support, when we were there.
The Venue "Capela Santa Maria" is a beautiful concert hall with fantastic acoustic.
There is a Steinway concert-piano D :D
If you like, you can watch the Video (ensemble cross.art performed "SHÔ" by Fernando Riederer) which we performed in the Capela Santa Maria.
During the Festival you can take part in workshops, lectures, open-rehearsals.
There are numerous fascinating concerts every day.
For lunch and dinner, we meet and eat together in a Brazilian restaurant with yummy Brazilian food :-)
The atmosphere between Bord members and musicians or between the invited ensembles are very nice.
You will become familiar with each other.
I really miss the peoples who I met there.
If you have time, please visit the Bienal Musica Hoje Curitiba, Brazil.
That will be a perfect opportunity for getting know nice people and exciting contemporary music.
It will take place until 22nd August ;-)
