VIRTUAL CHOIR JANUARY - MARCH 2021
OPEN CALL TO PARTICIPATE
Hosting / Organizing of cultural events was no exception to the negative consequences of the COVID 19 pandemic as it affected the daily life of humanity in an unprecedented way.
The "Choral Crossroads" festival was originally scheduled to take place in July 2020, but due to the measures imposed to limit the spread of the virus was postponed to October and after a new postponement was finally scheduled to take place in March 2021.
The Cultural Movement EPILOGI gladly invites you to participate in the Virtual Choir "Choral Crossroads - Off Stage 2021".
By adapting to safe conditions while maintaining the festival’s basic values which are based on respect for diversity, mutual understanding and above all in the spirit of unity the Cultural Movement Epilogi - Jeunesses Musicales Cyprus, in collaboration with Euro-Arab Music Center for Youth announces the organization of the Choir Meeting - entitled 'Off Stage' with the presentation of Virtual Choir.
The choirs representing the country or/ and their choir, will have the opportunity to participate in an international virtual choir initiative, singing along with choirs from different countries and cultures, both from Europe and the Middle East.
The initiative includes learning and recording the song "I MILIA", a traditional type, love song from Cyprus. The song describes the impatience of a man to marry his beloved "Milia", in order to legitimize their love and to avoid any gossip of the fellow villagers.
It has been sung a lot and remains quite popular over the years. The composer is Achilleas Lympouridis and the lyrics were written by Anthos Rodinis.
The choral version of the song was prepared by Michalis Gregoriou.
The participating choirs will receive the scores of the song in PDF format along with an MP3 file with 4 voices (Soprano - Alto - Tenor - Bass).
