Starting this Monday, May 18, SFP – Sociedade Filarmónica Portimonense will present an online video daily, with the objective of captivating the local community to learn to play the instruments available at their music school.
Due to the current pandemic of Covid-19, it became unfeasible to put on the field the initial SFP project, which intended to visit the educational establishments of the three parishes of Portimão during May, to present live the instruments it gives in its music school.
To overcome this constraint, the project "Online Instrument Presentations" was conceived, which consists of the daily dissemination of a video, with a maximum duration of two minutes, for a week. After a short introduction by conductor Gabriel Rodeia, who will describe some characteristics of the instrument in question, students and teachers of the School of Music will interpret excerpts from themes known to everyone.
Over eight days, and until next Monday, May 25, the videos can be viewed on Facebook in the municipality of Portimão, which in this way is associated with the initiative in view of the confinement still underway.
