Xamfrà wins the 2019 Alícia award
Xamfrà, Centre de Música i Escena per a l'Inclusió Social, has been awarded the 2019 Alícia Prize by the Catalan Academy of Music in the category of Social Project.

Aquest premi és un reconeixement a persones o entitats per la seva tasca en l’àmbit de la música comunitària i el desenvolupament de la vessant social de la música.

La cerimònia d’entrega dels guardons va ser el 21 de setembre a l’Atlàntida de Vic, coincidint amb la celebració del Mercat de Música Viva de Vic.

L’objectiu dels Premis és promocionar, donar visibilitat i posar en valor la música produïda dins del territori català i el conjunt de la seva activitat, sense distinció de gèneres o estils.

This award recognises individuals or organisations for their work in the field of community music and the development of the social side of music.

The awards ceremony was held on 21st September at the Atlàntida in Vic, coinciding with the celebration of the Vic Live Music Market.

The aim of the Awards is to promote, give visibility to and give value to the music produced in Catalonia and its activity as a whole, regardless of genre or style. The awards are presented annually to those projects or proposals that stand out for their excellence and promote the creative, artistic, cultural and social values of music.

The finalists of the awards were chosen by academics and entities of the Catalan Academy of Music through a series of votes,

This award confirms once again that the only way forward is to bring music and the performing arts closer to the people, and that music, theatre and dance are an immense tool for social cohesion. As much as economic interests would have us believe that greed and individualism are the solution, we will continue to believe in the values of generosity, commitment, trust and cooperation.

Congratulations to everyone for this award and many thanks to all the people who make Xamfrà possible.
