MUSIC lovers are called to join the ‘Taiwan Music and Culture Experience’, which will be held in Taiwan from Dec 5 to 12.

The objective of the music camp is to provide opportunities for local young musicians to learn and exchange knowledge with their peers and to acquire new experiences in musical performance.

State youth and sports committee chairman Soon Lip Chee said the music camp, organised by Penang Youth Development Corporation and Shih Chien University in Taiwan, is open to all Malaysians aged between 15 and 30.

“It is to enhance the participants’ own development in music and to promote local music culture,” he said at a press conference in Komtar recently.

The music camp’s basic requirement is that applicants must have music foundation, sight-reading skills, and are able to read music notes.

Soon also said those who know how to play Western instruments are preferred.

“Mandarin-speaking students will also be a plus.

“All applicants would have to pass a selection interview and only 30 will be selected.

“The response has been good. To date, 22 have already registered,” he added.

The registration fee for the music camp is RM3,700 per student, which includes round-trip airfare, 14 meals and more than 10 master classes.

Deadline for registration is July 8, while the interview date is July 13.
