THE PROJECT IN SUMMARY
Orchestra made up of young Italian and migrant musicians, some of whom live in conditions of social hardship, aimed at promoting culture and social integration.
THE PROJECT IN DETAIL
To offer the young Italian and foreign participants an opportunity for integration and dialogue with their contemporaries and especially for professional development through music as a tool for bringing people together and promoting wellbeing.
Approximately 15 Italian and second-generation immigrant youths between the ages of 16 and 23, some of whom come from difficult socio-economic and family situations, as well as social vulnerability.
The Tor Pignattara Little Orchestra, founded in 2012, is made up of Roman youth hailing from different countries that play instruments from all over the world. These young musicians get together two afternoons a week for three-hour sessions in a rehearsal studio in the multiethnic neighborhood of Tor Pignattara. The youth participate in small groups run by an artistic director who is a professional musician and focuses on musical technique, individual motivation and the work done in a rehearsal studio, as well as the musical and emotional relationship and balance between the members of the group. The older kids, who have been members of the Orchestra since the beginning, are now peer-educators for the younger members, who are inserted into the group both musically and relationship-wise.
A psychologist works with the young musicians and maintains a constant dialogue with family members and the people running the shelters from which some of the youth come.
The Orchestra performs for the public, raising people’s awareness with regards to socio-cultural integration.
In 2014, the Tor Pignattara Little Orchestra performed at the WaveLove Festival in Arezzo.
AMI supports the professional training of the young people of the Little Orchestra of Tor Pignattara not just in the artistic and performative sense, but also concerning the technical aspects of music in order to improve their job opportunities within the music field and in the technical and organisational spheres.
