Talented young students from Radovish will have another chance to represent Macedonia at the International Music Camp for Children and Youth in Salzburg in the summer of 2019.
“Bucim” DOO Radovish, a branch of the Solway Investment Group in Macedonia, opened its annual call for the Solway Music Fellowship Program. An elective part is also organized in cities in Ukraine and Guatemala, where some of the companies in the Solway Group are located.
The children of employees in Bucim, as well as students from artistic groups and educational institutions supported by the company, who have some talent in music, applied arts, ethnic craft, theater, or any other kind of creative performance, have the right to participate in the election part . The age of the participants should be from 14 to 17 years.
The scholarship program of the International Solway Music Fellowship Program, for the candidates of the youth music camp, consists of an elective part in two parts and is awarded by a joint decision of the jury. The jury is represented by the Salzburg Festival, the creative team of the Opera Camps and the Chairman of the Board of the Solway Investment Group. The jury will assess the creativity of the candidates, their artistic, theatrical or music education, as well as the communicative skills, and not the number of diplomas or certificates the candidate has won.
There are a total of 15 vacancies for the district of Radovish in the first part of the electoral program. The application starts on November 20, 2018. The deadline for filing the application is December 20, 2018.
In the first electoral section, the selected 15 candidates will have to attend a 20-week English-language course in order to reach the second part of the elimination, which will be in late April 2019. Candidates will qualify for the second phase by creating a creative video presentation for a duration of 90 seconds. Videos must be recorded in English, and the candidate must present and show his abilities and talents in one of the artistic disciplines.
Two of the most creative, most communicative, most capable and talented finalists will be selected for a trip to Salzburg, with all expenses covered and a week’s stay at the Salzburg Music Camp for Children and Youth, which will be held in August 2019 in Austria.
In the summer of 2018, Verche Andonova and Kostadin Atanasov from Radovish represented Macedonia in Salzburg.
When addressing the candidates for 2019, Solway’s last year scholarship said that the week they spent in Salzburg was of great importance to them, just like all parts of the electoral process until they were selected for scholarship. They have acquired the skill and the ability to communicate in English.
They also explained that speaking the same language (English) with the other students and mentors at the camp helped them get to know each other better with new acquaintances, and to increase their creative skills.
