Composition contest of music in the jewish tradition

Organized by the Union of Jewish Italian Communities (UCEI)

In the frame of a project dedicated to the musical area and cultural activities, the UCEI – Union of Jewish Italian Communities – is promoting a Composition Contest of Music in Jewish Tradition. The aim of this contest is to promote the composition of new musical pieces (chamber music or choral music) inspired by Jewish tradition. The goal is to enriching this specific area, so deeply important in the various areas of Jewish cultural and religious life.
The contest will be a significant comparison opportunity and meeting between participants, united by the specificity of the proposed theme and the universality of musical language.
