Music Festival committee: 'Festival will not disappear'

The Organizing Committee of Jimena's International Music Festival, made up of representatives of various local music organizations and the Council, met yesterday to evaluate the Council's recent announcement that this year's edition has been cancelled. Participants at the meeting also received budgetary reports on the previous two festivals. The committee agreed  that the 'Festival will not disappear' and to view this year as one of 'transition', which 'should be used as one of reflection about the Festival's evolution from its beginnings and to redefine its future'. It was also agreed that it is necessary to continue seeking sponsors among public agencies and 'above all, among businesses, which have been cutting back their support over the last few years'. July 2011 is maintained as the date for the Festival's 10th edition. (Note: click here to review the 2009 edition - image.)
