PRESIDENT OF ROMANIA
Message from the President of Romania, Mr. Klaus Werner Iohannis, for the organizers and audience of the first edition of vibrate!festival.
Brașov, 7-14 June 2015
Esteemed organizers from Paul Constantinescu 2009 Cultural Association and the Association for Music, Arts and Culture
Distinguished artists, interpreters, composers and conductors,
I want to thank you for the invitation at the first edition of vibrate!festival, Brașov 2015. I want to confess that looking at the festival program and the list of artists I understood why you chose as motto the quote from George Enescu and how well it suits. While Sibiu was getting ready to become the European Capital of Culture, I learned that the secret of a good audience is to engage the youth. The way in which vibrate!festival invites young people and engages them makes me happy: Brașov, as a competitor for the title of European Capital of Culture knows and does what it needs to in order to become a serious candidate. A great physicist demonstrated almost a century ago that each particle in nature is associated with a wave, each body with a vibration. Yet, no ecuation, no matter how complex, can comprise the vibration of life. And no theory synthesizes and communicates it better than the eight music notes. I see that vibrate! is about music as much as it is about human solidarity, about art in its classical expressions, and about innovation. I congratulate you for managing to capture the modern evolution of the entrepreneurial, inventive and humanist spirit of the historic Brașov. Your project gives a new, contemporary form of competitivity to the medieval Kronstadt – Brasso, based on the attractiveness of cultural diversity. Counting on these traits, I don’t doubt that by saying Happy Anniversary, Vibrate! I do nothing but anticipate.
