AMMAN — Music and its power to unite was celebrated once again last Tuesday through a joint concert performed at Terra Sancta Auditorium in Amman. The event came about through a close collaboration between the Nai Choir of Amman, directed by Diana Talhami; the National Music Conservatory, directed by Mohammed Sidiq; and the Italian Vocal Ensemble of the Sandro Pertini Music High School of Genoa, directed by Professor Luca Dellacasa. اضافة اعلان

The event, promoted by the Italian Embassy in Amman in collaboration with the Liguria Region, offered a mutual tribute to traditional Italian and Jordanian classical music, interpreted by the choirs in unison, in a unique opportunity for exchange between young artists for professional growth, according to a press statement.

“We hope that this amazing event will only be the first of a series, allowing our students to carry out experiences to enhance their talent and their musical preparation,”  said the Head of the Sandro Pertini High School, Mr Cavanna.

He was echoed by the Director of the Liguria Regional School Office (USR), Mr Clavarino, who remarked on the relevance of internationalization in education and training policies.

The Pertini High School Vocal Ensemble’s arrival in Jordan from Genova, Italy, was followed by “an intense week of joint rehearsals and artistic exchange” between the Italian students and the musicians of the Nai Choir and the National Music Conservatory of Amman, according to the statement.

These preparations culminated in the final concert on Tuesday at the Terra Sancta Auditorium in front of a large audience. 

Ambassador of Italy to Jordan Luciano Pezzotti said that, without a “particularly solid cultural relationship between Jordan and Italy, it would not be possible to hold such events.”

“These (events) not only highlight the commitment to build solid bridges between the two countries, but also to present the beauty of culture beyond geographical borders and to spread both Italian and Jordanian expertise and excellence,” the envoy added.

The event is part of the Italian Embassy’s rich cultural program in Amman to expand Jordanian knowledge of Italian tradition, culture, and talent. It underlines Italy's commitment to strengthen collaboration with artists like the Vocal Ensemble of Pertini High School, who are eager to export their talents and to build solid and long-lasting cooperation with the Jordanian counterparts.
