III International Music Band Contest ?Vila de la Sénia" 2009

Casa de Cultura. 18, 19 and 25 April 2009

The challenge for the second edition of the Competition was to get bands from outside Spain to participate. This was the first edition of an international scope. Twelve bands participated, three of them Portuguese. For the third edition, we worked for an entire year to get more European bands to participate so that we could continue to consolidate this dimension of the project. This year, Portuguese and Italian bands are participating. Having bands from different countries allows us to expand our consciousness of cultural and linguistic diversity and the evidence that music is a very important tool for communication that does not have geographic borders and allows us to enjoy diversity as an added value. We hope that between all of us we are capable of continuing to make paths for music to increase the towns? ability to understand each other, participate and collaborate on shared projects. The Agrupació Musical Senienca (Vila de la Sénia Music Association) feels honoured to head a project that allows us to make our town and our culture more known around the world. This project would not be possible without the work of all the people, organisations and institutions who are participating. Our most sincere thanks to everyone!
