Orquesta Sinfónica de Cartagena

 

 

The Fundación Salvi and the organization committee of The Symphonic Orchestra of Cartagena (OSC) has selected the members to be part of this group in the framework of the twelfth edition  of the International Cartagena Music Festival.

 

To give a warm welcome to the Festival, January 5, 2018, the Orchestra will prepare a surprise performance that promises to captivate the whole city and to make all get a sense of the beginning of this grand event.

 

This project is in its second stage of consolidation and counts of the valuable support of the Fundación Puerto de Cartagena, RCN, the Instituto de Patrimonio y Cultura de Cartagena de Indias (IPCC), the Mayor of Cartagena de Indias and the Universidad de Cartagena.

 

The participation  of the Festival corresponds to the structuring stage of the Orchestra, which restarts the inicial work started in January of this year with the first constructive nucleus.

 

From the auditions that were held November 17th and 18th 2017, the group that was selected agreed to participate in the concert programs of Cartagena XII Festival Internacional de Música, which will be held January 5th to the 13th of 2018 in the Cartagena de Indias under the title “The Essence of Form. The Classical Style.”

 

The International Cartagena Music Festival has served as a platform to consolidate the Symphonic Orchestra of Cartagena project which offers youths in the city the possibility to experience a valuable opportunity to grow and develop artistically, socially and culturally.

 

The scholastic work and  preparation initially started two months before the Festival, that primarily focuses on giving life to a group that integrates with the city, it finishes with a great presentation in the heart of the Festival that makes the public live a sense of belonging and a closeness with  Cartagena de Indias.

 

 

About the Symphonic Orchestra of Cartagena

 

The  Symphonic Orchestra of Cartagena was founded in November 2016 as a dynamic group and opened to young Colombian musicians, residents of Cartagena de Indias. As self-formation of the city, it’s objective is to integrate itself with  the existing offer to develope and serve as a reference point and an opportunity for  professional growth for students and  musicians.

 

The group started with the first constitutional nucleus that debuted in the framework of the 12th  International Cartagena Music Festival in January 2017; this nucleus is constantly being amplified and strengthened by different public announcements that allow young musicians of the city to participate in distinct phases of development and Orchestral activities.
