Argentina – Online Music Festival "VALDOCCO en CASA"

30 July 2020

(ANS - Neuquén) - The Salesian presence in Neuquén, belonging to the Province of Southern Argentina, invites you to participate in the online music festival "Valdocco en Casa". Silvina Irigaray, an artist of Catholic music who's been active for over 30 years, is coordinating this festival together with the Salesian Youth Movement (SYM) active at the work and presents its origins and purposes.

Last year, the Salesian community of Neuquén began holding its first concerts of Catholic music, which had an excellent response from the public.

In May 2020, the Catholic Music Festival was then held online: an event also supported by Caritas Argentina to motivate fundraising because of the health and social crisis due to Covid-19. It has enjoyed the participation of numerous artists, not only from Argentina, but also from other nations. The festival is visible on YouTube at the following address: 

Now, with an eye to the month of Don Bosco's birth, this next edition of the festival is being proposed, to be held on August 22, 2020, at 14 local (UTC-3), always in online mode, through YouTube and the Facebook page of Silvina Irigaray.

The intention is to encourage and foster quality Catholic music, promote community sharing spaces, and create a habit of listening to new talents. Here, too, a fundraiser will be proposed, in this case in support of the Salesian works in the area - in turn very involved in anti-Covid-19 solidarity initiatives and towards all the needy in general.

"We hope that you will want to join this proposal of an outgoing Church, which Pope Francis offers us, through the wonderful art of Music, as a means to impact the world with the power of the Gospel," say the organizers.

Catholic musicians who want to present 1 or 2 Salesian Catholic songs, unpublished or not, of their choice, are invited to participate in the festival.
