Enel Romania Helping Young Musical Talent

Published on Wednesday, 25 June 2014

Enel Romania is sponsoring a training programme for young musical talent launched by the Princess Margarita Foundation, who are being given the chance to learn from the country's most famous musicians through three free master class lessons.

The first phase of the programme took place between 30 May to 1 June with a master class in Poiana Brasov that was led by experts such as Tiberiu Soare, Emil Visenescu, Rafel Butaru and Florin Mitrea. The training will continue from 25 June to 4 July with another master class held by the world-reknowned tenor Vasile Moldoveanu. The last lesson will take place in October and will offer those to learn from the acclaimed young pianist Alexandra Dariescu.

'The training and support of young talent is among the pillars of our CSR strategy,' said Enel Romania's Head of External Relations Radu Cosarca. 'This is why we support the artists of the future through the programme launched by the Princess Margarita Foundation.'

The Foundation supports young artists from poorer families who cannot develop their talent due to financial problems. Enel's involvement in the programme comes after an Enel Cuore-financed music laboratory for disadvantaged children in some areas of the Italian region of Campania. Enel is also promoting and sponsoring classical musical in a partnership with the Santa Cecilia Music Academy, of which it is a founding member, as part of the Energy for Music programme.

Since it entered the Romanian energy market in 2005, Enel has become the most important private investor in the country's electricity industry, operating in energy distribution and supply and renewable energy. It provides energy to 2.7 million customers – a third of the Romanian energy market – and employs around 3,600 people.
