Over 2,000 students from 47 schools and high schools of the area of Tarragona participated in the premiere of “Juguem per viure”, the Mediterranean Games official song. Held in the Tarraco Arena Plaça (TAP) and chaired by the Mayor of Tarragona, Josep Fèlix Ballesteros, the multitudinous concert was part of the Mediterranean Games Educational Project.
Right after the Institut Municipal d’Educació de Tarragona (IMET) suggested to compose a song for the Games, Petit Taller de Cançons (PeTaCa) started working on it. They counted with the collaboration of the Camp d’Aprenentatge Pau Casals (CdA), educational service from the Department of Education.
During these past months, students from dozens of schools have been working to sing the song as a choir in the official premiere. The music of this piece reflects our country’s musical culture, using the distinctive heroic tone of the compositions played for big sports events. Moreover, its lyrics emphasize ideas like unity, teamwork and personal growth, which merge with Tarragona 2018 values.
The song has been recorded in Grabaciones Silvestres studios and produced by Marc Parrot, with the collaboration of the Col·legi Joan Roig of Tarragona and Cor Jove of Salou.
The students that took part in this project come from schools of 20 different municipalities: Tarragona, Cambrils, Altafulla, el Vendrell, Torredembarra, Vallmoll, Reus, Solivella, Creixell, Coma-ruga, Calafell, la Riba, Salou, la Selva del Camp, l’Arboç, Riudoms, la Pobla de Montornès, Constantí, la Nou de Gaià and towns of the region of la Conca de Barberà.
The event counted with the support of BASF, which gave a shirt to all the kids.
Volunteers from the Mediterranean Games, the Escola Joan XXIII and the Col·legi Sant Pau collaborated with the logistics of the event.
