• Aalborg student on school concert tour

    13th of April 2016 · tags:

    Yesterday Tuesday Jamile Jamal Alfer-Henriksen won an internal competition at the Academy – awarded with a school concert tour with LMS, Live Music in School. Jamile study vocal and children’s music at the Academy in Aalborg. A total of four Academy ensembles were pre-selected for the competition among all interested parties. The selection of participants was based on their programs. The jury Tuesday consisted of both children and professionals from the Academy and from the school concert branch.

    Jamile and her three fellow students presented a combination of singing, storytelling and improvisation, in Danish, English and Arabic. Jamile herself is a refugee child from Lebanon. Her program reaches out for older schoolkids and would like to contribute to a more nuanced understanding of the choices people make when war destroys their home.

    For several years the Academy has cooperated with LMS to select an Academy ensemble for a school concert tour. The winners come on tour to four schools and also receive coaching from one of LMS’ managers. All concerts are paid according to current rates. But first and foremost the tour is a great chance for students to meet the most honest audience: Children! And to test a concert concept for this particular segment.
