Vatican Commemorates Human Rights With A Concert

Maestro Imma Shara lead the Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester of Frankfurt at the solemn concert for the 60th anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations, an event organized by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace. Inma Shara Director of Orchestra I don?t think I?ve ever been so nervous in a concert in all my life and perhaps with so much uncertainty. ; But at the same time it was exciting. I believe that it?s really indescribable having the honour of leading a concert for his Holiness. It?s a dream that came true for this young and talented Basque director, known in Spain as the prodigal child of classical music. Imma SharaDirectora de Orquestra The music is a passion that demands a lot of sacrifice, but it also gives you much enthusiasm: it improves the capacity of sacrifice because it?s like being an athlete ... practicing every day, every day you have the worry of stage fright. ; Yesterday obviously the stage fright was more intense because of the great responsibility, but I can say that each concert is an exercise in challenging yourself as a person, because once the concert starts we do not play back.The music of Felix Mendelsshon, Amadeus Mozart moved and pleased the guests of the Pope. In the end, when he thanked the director, Benedict XVI told her that the concert had brought him much joy.
