A Project in Unconventional Places
One of the main educational and cultural projects of the Radio Romania public corporation entitled "Listen to Five Minutes of Classical Music" wants to draw close the public to classical music in unconventional and crowded places but also in the Romanian schools at Music classes. The campaign has started in October 2010 with auditions in public spaces like hypermarkets, mall, libraries and museums and since then it continued biannual in March and October. The musical piece of the day can be listened at Radio Romania but also here.
A Project in Romanian Schools
Since 2014, "Listen to Five Minutes of Classical Music" it
is also a national programme in Romanian schools thanks to a partnership
between Radio Romania and the Ministry of National Education. This project
facilitates the approach of children towards classical music in the
easiest way through audition given by Radio Romania that include a musical
piece but also a story about that musical piece. Children also have
the chance to participate at an online contest with questions from the
musical pieces they`ve heard. In the school year of 2014-2015 about
120.000 children from all over the country have participated to this
project and in the school year of 2015-2016, 145.000 children have participated
and were organized two national competitions: one was about drawings
inspired by the music for the pupils in the primary classes and one
of musical auditions for the pupils in the gymnasium classes.
Musical pieces for pupils can be listened here.
