On October 19th the Holmes Clarinet Quartet, formed by students from the Centre Superior at the Liceu Conservatory Foundation, performed in the classrooms of Nexe Foundation with a very good reception by the children as well as professionals of the Centres. The Quartet is formed by the students Queralt Masqué García (clarinet), Jan Badia Torras (clarinet), Martina Lacambra Muñoz (clarinet) and Irene Divar Saéz (clarinet).
This performance is the result of the collaboration agreement signed between the Liceu Conservatory Foundation and Nexe Foundation in 2018, which means that once a month the students of the Liceu Superior Centre visit the classrooms of Nexe Foundation. Within this context and following the principle that music is an experiential language that stimulates children and helps them to communicate, the students of the Conservatory present concerts in which they perform works from their repertoires, but also specific pieces that connect with the children and with which they generate a dialogue through the pieces and the experience of live sound itself.
Nexe Foundation is a project that has the support of the Ferrer-Salat Music Foundation and was founded 40 years ago, offering global and individualised resources for the educational, health and psychosocial needs of children from birth. As part of their project, they have leading professionals in Music Therapy who articulate a project for the insertion of music as a therapeutic tool, which includes the participation of students from the Conservatory.
From the Liceu Conservatory Foundation, we work to offer our students a comprehensive education, so that they not only develop their talent and musical skills to the maximum, but also acquire the values and skills to create spaces of social transformation with their music.
