A.N.I.T.A. - Chitarra Punto Musica 2014
Berge Hagopian and Fouad Jabr guitar students at the Magnificat Institute in the classes of Mr. Yevgheni Markel and Mrs. Shiri Coneh, and their teacher Mr. Yevgheni Markel, participated in the initiative of the A.N.I.T.A. Asociation, of the Guitar Academy “A piu corde” and the Music Asociation “V. Ruffo” of Sacile (Italy) of five days of masterclasses, workshops, and ensemble music in Parco S. Floriano (Pordenone).
The teachers and staff, in addition to Mr. Markel, were Lucia Pizzutel, Emma Gani, Carlo Presot, Francesco Molmenti, Federico Rossignoli, and Teo Fornasier.
The classes were held in an atmosphere of friendship in a park a few kilometers from Sacile, with a very busy schedule of study: seven hours were dedicated to daily techniques, individual lessons and ensemble music in small group workshops. Everyone was very happy and satisfied: all the participants, students and teachers, were relatively young (the teachers around 30 year old and the students between 10-22).
On August 29, the studies and workshop were concluded, and thus began the performances of individuals and the orchestra, which was “formed” during the days of study: 28 participants including the teachers played with the students: a beautiful testimony of this collaboration.
In August 30, after study and rest in the morning, the group travelled to Teatro di Polcenigo for a concert. In the following days, there were visits to Venice, the Dolomites, Cortina d'Ampezzo, Giau, and Valle del Boite. It was an unexpected sunny day, breathtaking views that the three of the Magnificat students and teacher will hardly forget.
"For us”, says Roberto Cappuzzo, president of A.N.I.TA, together with Gianni Della Libera and Lucia Pizzutel, creators of the event, “it was a very nice and challenging experience".
To them, the organizers, the participants and the city of Sacile the warmest thanks from the Magnificat.
