Beginning today you are invited to the concerts organised as part of Urban Culture Fusion. One of the most highly anticipated concerts will be performed by Momoka Masuda at the Casino in Sinaia on July 26.
Following the success of the 20th anniversary edition of EUROPAfest – jazz/blues/pop/classic – an original festival introducing yearly over 300 artists from all corners of the world, which was held in Bucharest and Sibiu between 9 and 25 May 2013- jmEvents continues the series of events with Urban Culture Fusion -Summer Music Academy Sinaia, taking place between July 18-31, 2013.
Urban Culture Fusion is a distinctively original project of vast European dimensions, which is held in seven countries: Germany, France, Italy, Austria, Bulgaria, Great Britain, and Romania as a tour of 20 or 25 concerts.
Through a set of innovative concerts, the event brings together elite jazz and classical artists to perform specially designed musical arrangements of jazz and classic fusion, and interpret well-known themes of the international jazz, pop, blues, and classical repertoire, as well as film scores.
Summer Music Academy Sinaia is at its second edition in Romania, and is a project initiated by the European Music Academy led by Mr Constantin Serban, Art Director and Concertmaster of the “Pays de la Loire” National Orchestra. After five years of successful performances in France, a decision was made to extend the program in Romania, under partnership with jmEvents. The project includes both concerts and master classes for violin, viola, and cello. Workshops and master classes are conducted by renowned professors from the Conservatory in Nantes, the Music University in Cork, the Royal Conservatory in Brussels, Hochschule für Musik in Cologne, the Conservatory in Lille, and the National Music University in Bucharest.
Professor Constantin Serban has devised a diverse programme which offers young musicians coming from all over Europe access to advanced studies and intensive performance, and, at the same time, it provides the audience with high quality concerts held in one of the most beautiful touristic attractions of Romania – the city at the feet of Bucegi Mountains.
One of the most highly anticipated concerts will be performed on 26 July at the Casino in Sinaia by Momoka Masuda / Japan, who won the Grand Prize at Jeunesses International Piano Competition “Dinu Lipatti” 2013. The programme will include: M. Ravel, F. Chopin, P.I. Tchaikovsky, L. v. Beethoven.
