5 years correspond to one cycle. And the pre-balance that we can do (the final balance will be made after the realization of the fifth edition, from 21st to 24th next August) is highly positive. Forgive the immodesty of those who judge in own cause, but the echoes come from outside: words of recognition from the most disparate sites, from participants who passed through Seia and want to return to the International Song Festival of Serra da Estrela.
The ambitions that we revealed in the "start" of our first edition (professional rigor, quality of the artistic content and an attractive playful component) were achieved. This recognition, coming from those we work for, gives us more confidence and security to prepare for a great fifth edition.
We are going to receive very well those who, next August, will visit our Festival: those who do it for the first time and those who return to it. Be all very welcome!
“Festival of gathering enriching experiences, a bonding agent of conviviality between different languages and cultures, and also a competition which is expected to be profitable and healthy.” (The Mayor of Seia)
“The main objective of FICSE is the conviviality (in an atmosphere of a healthy competition) among children and youth, Portuguese and foreigners, and the discovery of a region in the interior of the country, through visits and excursions to places of touristic and cultural interest.” (Director of the Festival)
