"The debut of Radio Romania Muzical on a new frequency has a symbolic meaning, and comes at a time when national consumption of culture is at its lowest point in Europe.In this context, in the strategic expansion of the Romanian Radio Broadcasting Company's frequencies, the inclusion of a niche station such as Radio Romania Muzical appeared as a necessary way to serve our public mission and, by using the tools and status at our disposal, to get involved in solvinga pressing problem: that of generating as many contexts as possible to bring audiences closer to the cultural products, in general or that Radio România develops, supports and promotes."- said Răzvan Ioan Dincă, President and CEO of the Romanian Radio Broadcasting Company.

In order to celebrate with the people of Iași, Radio Romania Muzical has prepared, together with the main musical institutions of Iași, a festival that brings together leading names in contemporary performing arts, artists from Iași, but also artists representing Radio Romania. All the events will be streamed live on Radio România Muzical.
