The Music Festival of Panama is a project created by the Fundación Sinfonía Concertante de Panamá, for the purpose of bringing together national and International musicians in a great cultural and artistic exchange, through diverse activities that enrich their musical passion and expertise.
The intention of the Alfredo Saint-Malo Music Festival of Panama is to prepare Panamanian artists in the world of classical music by promoting the art of music education, improving the tactics of teaching and creating musicians at the highest level.
This year we celebrate the VII Alfredo de Saint Malo International Music Festival 2013 (May 30 to June 9), and we will showcase the world premiere of the composition “Cobalto azul, en tránsito” from Spanish composer Ramón Paus. This event will be promoted worldwide by the prestigious publisher The Music Sales Group.
The festival’s international reputation continues to grow, and this year we welcome students from 11 countries of the Americas to join the festival’s international orchestra. The faculty of the festival includes prominent musicians from Louisiana State University, the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, the Youth Orchestra of the Americas, the San Diego Symphony, the National Symphony of the Dominican Republic, the National Symphony of Panama, the University of the Pacific, and the University of Panama among others.
In addition to the participation of outstanding international soloists including Dennis Parker, Yuval Gotlibovich, and Elias Goldstein, the festival highlights Panamanian artists such as Luis and Isaac Casal, Jorge Ledezma Bradley, George Bennett, and acclaimed sisters Ariadna and Graciela Núñez. This is just a brief list of the artists who will be showcased during the 11-day festival.
