RELAY MUSICIANS: OUTREACH TRAINING
Sharing, passing on knowledge, and introducing young and “remote” audiences to music: such are the missions of the Relay musicians and singers. With this in mind, the Académie of the Festival d’Aix has developed an outreach training programme for young musicians who are on their way to a professional career, aware of the importance of knowledge-sharing and keen to be involved in outreach projects.
An innovative training programme
Singers and instrumentalists from all backgrounds – including some from the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra (MYO) – and all musical traditions are invited to take part in themed training sessions hosted by renowned educators such as Mark Withers, artistic and education project leader for London Symphony Orchestra Discovery. In a process of experimentation and improvisation, Relay musicians and singers receive training, acquire outreach techniques and tools, and then put the lessons learned into practice in field projects with the relevant audiences, in partnership with Passerelles. What makes the Relay musicians training course unique is this creative and participatory approach, offering the opportunity to create innovative projects with “remote” audiences (people with physical and/or motor disabilities, social or educational difficulties, etc.).
For the 2016-2017 season, four training sessions are on offer: an introductory module took place at the Conservatoire Darius Milhaud in Aix-en-Provence from 12 to 14 November 2016. The training continued at the Grand Théâtre de Provence from 23 to 25 January this year with a more comprehensive module. From 25 February to 1 March, the focus was on the voice, with a module dedicated to Relay singers as part of the enoa (European Network of Opera Academies) network’s Young Opera Makers programme. Lastly, a final module invites participants in the previous sessions to come together and work on developing outreach projects.
Training in the field for unique audiences
Discover the Relay musicians workshop with a group of six teenagers from the IME ESCAT, a medico-educational institute for developmentally disabled young people in Marseille: here, outreach involves teaching the concepts of rhythms, pulsations, tempos, etc. based on musical fragments by Igor Stravinsky. This workshop invites young people to “overcome their limitations and become aware of their own musicality” according to Annie Notin, a specialist educator at IME Escat. And Laurent Zaffran, a teacher at the Collège des Caillols secondary school in Marseille, adds that “this workshop has enabled a free, raw expression leading to moments of grace where we no longer see the disability”. This work shows these teenagers with mental disabilities that “they are just like everybody else, with the common denominator of being highly sensitive”. With his class, Laurent will be continuing this approach by working on Pinocchio – a piece which will be performed as an opera next July at the Festival d’Aix – in order to address the issue of difference through the sensitive character of Pinocchio, with whom the young people can identify, and to explore the conflicted relationship with school.
Become Relay musicians!
If you are driven by a love of knowledge-sharing and are keen to share your art with as many people as possible – newcomers, youngsters or “remote” audiences – this course is for you!
Apply for the training sessions in order to obtain all the keys and tools you need to make your outreach projects a success.

JOIN THE MEDITERRANEAN YOUTH ORCHESTRA!
Are you a young musician living in a Mediterranean country? Do you want to get high-level training and have a rewarding learning experience? Apply to the auditions and let your talent shine! The Mediterranean Youth Orchestra (MYO) gives young musicians from the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region and the Mediterranean the chance to have an educational experience as a musician and in an orchestra. Every year, a hundred young musicians from twenty different countries are chosen from auditions to take part in the MYO sessions at the Académie du Festival d’Aix: a symphonic session and an intercultural creation session. The MYO is now on the lookout for young, talented and passionate musicians from Mediterranean cities.
The symphonic session is designed for young classical musicians from conservatoires, universities and music colleges in the PACA and Mediterranean region. The selected musicians will be conducted by Pablo Heras-Casado, assisted by Quentin Hindley, and supervised by the London Symphony Orchestra (LSO) from July 6th to 29th 2017. At the end of the workshops, the young musicians will be invited to perform in concert as part of the 2017 Festival d’Aix’s closing ceremony. The MYO auditions aim to select the best musicians in the Mediterranean region. They are looking for classical musicians of a very high standard at the end of their studies who intend to become professional musicians. Prior musical experience in an orchestra is preferable.
Alongside the symphonic session, the intercultural creation session is designed for young improvisational musicians from Mediterranean countries. Musician and composer Fabrizio Cassol will oversee the group creation experience from July 7th to 19th 2017 whereby a dozen musicians will experience life as an intercultural ensemble in creation, in residency and in concert.
Auditions are for musicians with a unique artistic personality who demonstrate a level of comfort in any style of improvisation (traditional Mediterranean music, jazz, early music) or an aptitude for oral or written composition and who are open to working artistically with musicians from other musical backgrounds.
“The MYO is a constellation of musicians, with the challenge that the music must be created on-site!” Fabrizio Cassol, musical director of the 2015 intercultural session

Rezidencije u Cité internationale des arts
Program rezidencija u Cité internationale des arts u Parizu namijenjen je stranim umjetnicima koji želi razviti neki istraživački projket u Parizu tijekom tri mjeseca. Njihovu selekciju vrše Francuski instituti i Francuske alijanse kao i druge francuske i strane kulturne strukture.
U 2017. godini Francuski institut će imati na raspolaganju 24 ateljea za strane umjetnike iz svih područja. Ateljei su smješteni u samom srcu Parizu što umjetnicima omogućuje potpuno usredotočenje na kreativnost i produbljivanje istraživanja van njihova uobičajenog konteksta.
Od 2015. godine Francuski institut i francusko Ministarstvo kulture i komunikacije ujedinili su svoje projekte rezidencija stranih umjetnika u Cité internationale des arts što je Francuskom institutu omogućilo da dvostruko poveća smještajne kapacitete.
Osim Francuskih instituta i Francuskih alijansi, i druge francuske i strane kulturne strukture mogu predložiti kandidate ze ovaj program.
