St. Louis partners with Unicef

Saint Louis collaborates with Unicef has been chosen to collaborate on the Contest

“OPS! – Your Opinion, Beyond Prejudice, Against Stereotypes”, launched on the online platform “U-Report On The Move,” a UNICEF program that gives a voice to young migrant and refugee/s on social issues.

As for the Contest’s “Best Song” category, the winner is Bah Oumar, a young boy in his 20s who lives in Catania, Italy. “El Bah,” the nickname he goes by, won the OPS contest with a lyric called “5 Senses of Life.”

St. Louis will take part in the second phase envisaged by the contest, activating a course of coaching and mentorship to finalize and refine the winning piece.

To this end, Saint Louis opens an internal selection among students in its academic courses in Songwriting, Electronic Music and Music Production. Selected students will be asked to work together with the winner to transform the piece into an artistic product.

The meetings will be held via videoconference (5 meetings of 3 hours each) between the months of December and February and will be aimed at:

  • Support in writing the text
  • Writing and Arranging the music base

The track will then be recorded and mixed in the studio by Saint Louis’ two-year Mix & Mastering students, and in March it will be officially presented during a national event closing the “OPS!” campaign on prejudice and stereotypes in the presence of institutional partners.

Students who collaborate on the project will be awarded 2 training credits(2 CFA).
