concertwithyou the IYMF’s online platform to support musicians!

 

Following Yehudi Menuhin’s dream, “giving a voice to the voiceless” is one of the priorities of the International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation.

 

In 2020 and beyond, the pandemic has prevented musicians and artists to perform and express themselves creatively. www.concertwithyou.com was born from the need to support musicians to broadcast their work and to continue to offer musical moments to the people. Since December 2020, more than 50 musicians, 3 online concerts (Quentin Dujardin, Musica Na Bagagem, Brussels Chamber Orchestra) have been featured on the platform. The Foundation’s concerts and the first International MUS-E Festival have also been exclusively broadcasted on www.concertwithyou.com.

 

In addition, our intention is to provide concrete opportunities to young emerging musicians by funding “live sessions” videos of their work. This year, we were able to support three talented musicians by funding three live sessions videos:

Côme Ranjard, Green Catani, Sahad.

 

The purpose here is to make www.concertwithyou.com a launching platform for emerging musicians, that might further become ambassadors of the International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation, ambassadors of Yehudi Menuhin’s heritage. Everyone can support emerging musicians by donating on the platform. Every donation collected will serve at remunerating musicians for the recording of exclusive live sessions or through the organization of a concert to develop further their career.

 

“Together we can help artists to blossom!”

The story of Altea Narici, young cellist supported by IYMF

 

Altea is 25, she’s from Italy and likes to be referred to as an artist, traveller-performer and community engager. We met her when she was studying at the Accademia di Sante Cecilia in Roma and when she participated to our Music Up Close artistic residency in Belgium. It was a residency aimed to strengthen their musical skills and their experience of co-creation. Touched by her music, by her inspiration and by how she lived to discover different cultures and traditions through music exploration, IYMF – thanks to the Friends of the International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation – decided to support her in the achievement of her project called “New Worlds”.

 

IYMF therefore helped us to join the Sikta Center for Art and Ecology in the USA, a way for her to deepen her experience and research in native cultures, traditional music, storytelling and arts, to reflect on cross-border social themes through music and engage with local communities. Indeed, she offered one community event per month (performances, workshops, talks or other forms of encounters) and focused on creativity and artistic expression with people of all ages in different settings (schools, healthcare institutions, cultural centers) and on the connection with the natural environments explored through art. During this adventure, Altea became one of the youngest artist ambassador of the Menuhin Foundation which saw her develop within our projects to then carry out her own while sharing the values of transmission, sharing and dialogue between cultures.

IYMF residencies for young artists as creative laboratories

 

Since its creation, IYMF has also developed itself as an excellent training provider for young artists, most notably through the organization of unique residencies and masterclasses. These residencies are designed to encourage the exchange of knowledge and good practices between artists and enable the co-creation of new works. These are privileged moments, where we create a new microcosm between people who are encouraged and prepared for creation and group cohesion.  Usually, surprising and unique results emerge, with new ideas, original creations are produced and the willingness to do more and extend our methodology with new artists! Over the years and accompanied by the best such as Thierry Van Roy, we have developed a practice and have touched very different audiences during our residencies, whether young student artists in conservatories with whom we have worked on classical and orchestral music or aspiring musicians but totally new with whom we have created new and terribly touching works on the theme of migration.

 

While strengthening its network of artist ambassadors, IYMF leverages its strength to support those talented young artists who are the bearers of our values and the intercultural mediators of tomorrow.

Donations of at least 40 euros made to the King Baudouin Foundation give rise to a tax reduction of 45% of the amount actually paid, which is shown on the certificate. Following the COVID-19 crisis, the federal government (Belgium) announced on June 12, 2020 that the tax deduction for donations made in 2020 is increased to 60% of the amount donated.

Antonino Talamo

Multi-percussionist, performer and teacher. I study popular and folk music from all over the world, I try to express my creativity through the instruments of the southern hemisphere, trying to do it respecting the tradition and the culture behind it. My teaching commitment and my passion for sharing and exchange are the basis of my artistic language. Currently my personal research and my work are oriented to the development of two projects: in the artistic field with “Cosaltro Esperimenti” and in the didactic field with the method of Body Percussion “Batuque Na Mao”.

 

LAST CONCERT : International MUS-E Festival

Everyday from July 19 until August 08th MUS-E organisations from Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Hungary, Portugal, Spain, Belgium, Brazil and Israël will present the work of artists that lead activities locally aiming at promoting equal access to culture and the arts.

This festival is a way to promote all social initiatives and artisitic creations that happen within the MUS-E network, support MUS-E artists in sharing their work and raise awareness about all MUS-E network activities and missions.

Concert With You

Concertwithyou was born from the need to support musicians who can no longer perform on stage. The pandemic has exposed artists to precarity and giving a voice to musicians who are voiceless is one of the priorities of the International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation.

Every two weeks, you will discover three artists from different musical universe and genres but just as talented.

More than ever, we need your support to continue helping musicians, maintaining, and developing this platform. Every donation, no matters the amount, will help supporting music. All donations collected will serve at remunerating musicians to produce a video of a song from their repertoire.

Donations of at least 40 euros made to the King Baudouin Foundation give rise to a tax reduction of 45% of the amount actually paid.

Together we can help artist to blossom!

Enjoy the show.
