2nd Edition of Advent Musical

The Regional Secretariat for Education, Science and Technology (SRE), through the Directorate of Artistic Education Services (DSEA) of the Regional Directorate for Education (DRE), is promoting the 2nd edition of Musical Advent.

Between the 1st and the 25th of December, the DRE/DSEA will publish daily on its Facebook and YouTube pages, a Christmas theme interpreted by students from the regions elementary schools.

All in all, 26 schools will be participating in the event.  This initiative requires students to choose a Christmas theme, understand its message and then record both an audio and video file capturing its essence, using the SRE’s Multimedia Centre.

Musical Advent is inspired by ‘Christian Advent,’ a time that precedes Christmas and where joy, brotherhood and peace are celebrated daily until the day, so awaited and celebrated by the Madeiran people – the birth of the Child Jesus.

Each day is said to be richer, as we share and rejoice in the work done by students and their teachers, as they sing a collection of Christmas themed songs. 

And in times, such as we are living at the moment, I think we all need to rejoice in beautiful music, creativity, and share the beauty of Christmas with everyone.
