The National Chamber Choir “Madrigal – Marin Constantin” and the Cantus Mundi National Program launched the editorial program “Music for all”

Monday, 15 November 2021 , ora 9.04

The "Music for all" volume is here to support conductors and teachers by introducing a complex component to the methods used in the educational process, targeting those used primarily in building relationships within a choir or musical group, with the purpose of maintaining a space dedicated to the peaceful development of all children, regardless of their educational needs. Additionally, the editorial brings an element of novelty by suggesting a self-reflective component, of self-knowledge, through which the trainers can enhance their calling, which urged them from the very beginning to become teachers.

"The conductors of children's choirs have an extremely important mission - they train people, build communities, touch hearts, write stories into the lives of those reached by the music. Which is exactly why the interaction between conductor and child is of huge import, simultaneously being a connection that is constantly evolving and which needs continuous and minute care. This guide's purpose is to uplift this relationship by building and strenghtening a harmonious environment, where each child cand reach their true potential, feel safe, develop healthily, in order to fully enjoy one of the most beautiful experiences - that of playing alongside his friends and classmates" - said Emil Pantelimon, Manager, National Chamber Choir "Madrigal - Marin Constantin".

"Music for all" brings to the forefront the essential principles of integration and inclusivity via culture, through which, when interacting in an adequate educational environment, any child can reach their true potential, regardless of physical or mental limitations. These are the principles upon which the Cartus Mundi National Program, the largest movement for communication and integration of children through music in Romania, was created. It promotes acceptance, diversity and tolerance in all activities and events.

The " Music for all - Integration and social inclusivity of children and young people with special educational needs" is launched and implemented by the National Chamber Choir "Madrigal - Marin Constantin" through the Cartus Mundi National Program, in partnership with the Central University Library "Carol I" and the Iași County School Inspectorate.

The project is co-financed by the National Cultural Fund Administration (AFCN)*.

The Cartus Mundi National Program is the largest program for social integration through music in Romania, started by Ion Marin, renowned conductor, and carried out alongside the National Chamber Choir "Madrigal - Marin Constantin".

After 10 years of activity, the program brings together an impressive number of 1.680 choirs. Over 60.000 children and teens, along with their conductors, take part in promoting choir all over the country, tearing down the barriers of ethnicity, social status and physical or mental ability; thus building complex cultural nuclei, so necessary to our society's revitalisation.

The National Chamber Choir "Madrigal - Marin Constantin"
is a staple of both Romanian and international music. Since its establishment in 1963 by conductor Marin Constantin (1925-2011), the Madrigal Choir has held over 4.600 world renowned concerts, truly leaving its mark as the "country's staple". It is a global benchmark of chamber music, with a repertoire leaning towards the European Renaissance, Byzantine music, as well as national and international contemporary music.

In November 2016, the National Chamber Choir "Madrigal - Marin Constantin" was officially named an Ambasador of Freedom, Hope and Peace, receiving the "Jean Nussbaum and Eleanor Roosevelt" award at the United Nations Palace of Geneva, during the Global Summit for Religion, Peace and Security. After 58 years of uninterrupted activity, the National Chamber Choir "Madrigal - Marin Constantin", a public institution for concerts, under the supervision of Romania's Ministry of Culture, still continues its path to cultural diplomacy as one of the oldest and most appreciated European choir ensembles.
