Press Release – Cultural event at Company of Photosensitive Materials

Tirgu Mures

April 7, 2016


Azomureș brings to public attention the necessity of resuming activity on one of the most important industrial platforms of the city, the Company of Photosensitive Materials in the Unirii district of the Tîrgu Mureș city. Having been shut down in 2003, for reasons mostly related to the digital revolution, the platform can now become attractive for different investments in industry, but also for original cultural projects.
Such an event will take place on June 9, 2016, in one of the halls of the „Azo Photo” factory which was purposely restored for this occasion: a classical music concert in collaboration with the “Cultura Viva” Association, founder of the „Academia Sighișoara” Festival. Musicians from Romania and from abroad will perform in a concert whose theme is “George Enescu – Bartok Bela, Interferences”.
Among the artists we mention: Alexandru Gavrilovici – Switzerland, Andreea Duca -Spain, Stephane Giampellegrini – Luxemburg, Aurelian Bacan – Romania and the famous string quartet Arcadia – Romania.
“Cultura Viva” Association, founder of the „Academia Sighișoara” School-Festival has been supported by Azomureș as a sponsor over the last years. It is therefore natural that the opening of a new cultural space in Tîrgu Mures should be accompanied by an academic musical touch. The program of the concert to be delivered on June 9 will include musical contributions which professors from all over the world and also the elite of the Romanian musicians will present at the “Academia Sighisoara” 2016 event, between August 1-14” declared Alexandru Gavrilovici, president of the „Cultura Viva” Association.
Given the fact that the Mures county, and especially the city of Tîrgu Mureș is a cultural center of classical music, due to the activity of the State Philharmonic Orchestra and the Art Highschool, Azomureș offers its support for two talented young people to participate in the courses of the „Academia Sighișoara Festival. The grants, which cover all participation expenses, will be offered to students in the 11th and 12th grades, following a selection process coordinated by the representatives of the „Academia Sighișoara Festival and of the Tîrgu Mureș Philharmonic Orchestra. The selection contest will take place on April 15, 9 o’clock, in the Small Concert Hall of the Palace of Culture.
