In the last phase of the NEWS in MAP project, when its seven Intellectual outputs have been achieved and all its activities have been completed, the dissemination of the project has been finalized too, spreading its results at national and International levels, and thanks to the emergence of social media as the increasingly dominant mode of information dissemination, these links have been shared as much as possible.

On Tuesday 26/4/2022 the Symphonic Band of Strovolos Municipality-European University Cyprus gave an invited performance at the Sala Academica of the “Santa Cecilia” Conservatory of Music. The performance was a commemoration of the 200 years from the beginning of the Greek war of independence from Ottoman rule. The concert included original and arranged works by Greek and Cypriot composers such as Manos Hadjidakis, Mikis Theodorakis, Eleni Karaindrou, Michalis Andronikou, Nikolaos Mantzaros and others, most of which have not been heard before by Italian audiences. The concert provided an opportunity to share unknown repertoire for wind band and to exchange ideas and practices for entrepreneurship in music. A highlight of the concert included a performance by Dr. Marco Albonetti, saxophone professor at Trento Conservatory, who was a featured soloist on Stephen Bulla’s “Caprice for Saxophone.”

The vocal ensemble “Vorrei la voce bianca” (I would like the white voice), coordinated by Prof. Carla Conti, of the Department of Didactics of Music and Instrument for the course of Choir Conducting and Choral Repertoire, has implemented a process of shared responsibility, flat leadership, for the development of metacognitive skills and strategies through performative practices.
This didactic process has engaged the participants of the ensemble as choristers, soloists and choir directors at the same time.
In the first semester of the academic year 2021/22 the ensemble worked on a repertoire of choral songs of popular tradition or inspiration, coming from the various Italian regions (Campania, Sicily, Sardinia, Friuli, Emilia Romagna, Lazio, Abruzzo, Veneto, Piedmont).
The students discussed the choice of the repertoire, and for each piece, their respective roles: choristers, soloists, instrumentalists and conductors of the ensemble, reflecting on which learning processes best suited to the performance (text study techniques, video shooting for study of gestures) by putting into action and analyzing in which way and how much sight, listening and reading have contributed to the awareness of how everyone learns and what kind of knowledge follows.
