24 May 2017This year marks the beginning of the Second Festival of creative youth “Children in the Rhythm of the World” in Kazakhstan, dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the foundation of the UNESCO Clubs movement. This project is aimed at discovering and supporting the young and talented performers of our country, assistance in realization of their creative potential, and popularization of Kazakhstan’s culture through children’s art.
Traditionally, children in age groups 12-13, 14-15, and 16-17 are invited to participate in the following nominations: instrumental music, choreography, and vocal.
According to the organizers of the event, of all contestants participating, only 18 of the most talented young performers will be chosen by the committee. The final stage of the project will be held in October of 2017 in Almaty, where the performers will be presented with a unique opportunity to attend masterclasses from the leading specialists of the country, and most importantly, perform on one of the biggest stages along with the well-known artists, accompanied by a symphonic orchestra. The grand finale of the project will feature 9 victors, who will travel to Paris, France for the Gala-Concert of the Festival “Children in the Rhythm of the World” in the UNESCO Headquarters (October 15-18, 2017).
It is important to note the success of the First Festival “Children in the Rhythm of the World”, which was held in 2015 in light of the 70th anniversary of UNESCO. The Festival received over 1500 applications from children and teens, from which only 25 finalists and 9 victors were chosen from different regions of Kazakhstan. As a result, many of the participants received grants for a study in the leading art institutes and colleges of the country. This project served as an excellent example for the effectiveness of joint efforts from government bodies, international and private companies, and representatives of art sphere of Kazakhstan in order to support and fund the upcoming, very talented generation.
Symbolically, the organization of the Second Festival falls on the celebration of 25th Anniversary of the admission of Kazakhstan to the UNESCO and the establishment of the National Commission of the Republic of Kazakhstan for UNESCO and ISESCO, along with the promotion of the International Decade for the Rapprochement of cultures for 2013-2022.
