Ave Maria Concert Festivals premiered at Cathedral San Cataldo, The Ancient City of Taranto, year 2011 as a result of composer and founder N. Skipper's visit with His Excellence T. Capone, head of music at The St. Peters Cathedral in Rome in April 2011 and D.O.N.O. group managers in May 2011.
The first concert was arranged within 14 days from acceptance, and international artists were mixed with local Italian artists, who presented a variation of Ave Maria compositions selected from over 3000 composers in front of a public audience and two TV-stations, journalists, etc.
The media commented: "Ave Maria Concert Festivals - Un successo di artisti e di pubblico nelle suggestiva chiesa matrice".
In 2012, having heard the famous choir "Coro Lirico Terre Verdiane" performing at Cita d'Festival, Martina Franca, Meistro N. Skipper decides to offer the choir to represent Ave Maria Concert Festivals at any major concert hall via the worlds most professional concert promoters. The choir had a previous career working with major ensembles, such as The La Scala Opera in Milan, Polar Prize Winner Ricardo Muti, Pavarotti, etc., and can now be booked to perform any of the 3000 to 4000 Ave Maria compositions on request.
As the world had never heard of such a vast Ave Maria project before, it was decided to promote and spread the seeds and knowledge of Ave Maria Concert Festivals by use of the Internet, LinkedIn, and e-mails during year 2013 and 2014. Thus, The Vatican decided to call in 40 major companies in December 2015, and offer the companies to take part and preserve the cultural heritage of music. Companies, who accepted the invitation, are such as Virgin Records, Microsoft, etc.
AVE MARIA SONGS AND LYRICS
Lyrics honoring Maria/Mary is a wide range of prayers. Among the most famous is composer Vavilov, who's lyrics is as simple as "Ave Maria" and composed year 1970. Composer Schubert, which is probably still the most famous Ave Maria in modern times, borrows his lyrics from Scotland, and is composed in the 1820ies. A contemporary composer dares to fit Joseph into the lyrics hailing Maria/Mary in contrast to the original prayers, which has been written over the past 1.600 years.
