Comment by Jury Members
Congratulations on opening a new horizon in the field of ‘community arts’ to gauge a nation’s cultural and artistic scale. Thanks to the elaborate preparation by SICOF committee, a smooth review was carried out. The five judges were particularly notable for applicants’ artistic ability, as well as for the purpose of the ‘Community Orchestra.’ Also, we have tried that the participants with various nationalities can participate in SICO.
The recommendations based on the aspect of the artistic ability by Antoine MARGUIER, the first permanent conductor, and the artistic director of SICO, and the conclusion of juries were highly harmonized. That made us confident that SICO will be the orchestra with artistic high level.
We hope this project that meets the needs of the times and positive values to achieve more than expected.
