Good evening, ladies and gentlemen!

 

On April 29th 2017 at the Annual TISC, Brazil achieved its best result ever in the Totallympics Contests with its second-place finish thanks to the song "Hear Me Now". Now, almost exactly one year later after the historic position, TISC is coming for the first time to South America.

 

We're honoured to host this year's landmark contest, the 10th overall TISC, and hope for a great weekend of music. Without further ado, the Organizing Committee officially declares the opening of the Totallympics International Song Contest 2018!

Located in Rio de Janeiro, the Maracanã (or Estádio Jornalista Mário Filho) is one of the most iconic football stadiums in the world. It was opened for the FIFA World Cup in 1950, in which Brazil was sadly beaten 2–1 by Uruguay in the deciding game in front of no less than 199,854 people - making it the world's largest stadium by capacity then.

 

After it was renovated for the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics and Paralympics (it hosted the Opening and Closing ceremonies), the stadium currently seats 78,838 spectators, being the largest in Brazil.

 

The stadium most known name is derived from the Maracanã River, whose point of origin is in the jungle-covered hills to the west, crossing various neighborhoods of Rio's North Zone. But the name itself, Maracanã, derives from the indigenous Tupi–Guarani word for a type of parrot which inhabited that region.

 

Home of sport events, it was also stage for many international music acts - such as Frank Sinatra, Paul McCartney, Madonna, Prince, Tina Turner and the Rolling Stones. A legendary venue for a legendary event!

The Brazilian National Anthem was composed by Francisco Manuel da Silva in 1831 - but it was only made official after a decree by President Epitácio Pessoa in 1922 at the centennial celebrations for the Independence of Brazil. At that occasion, such decree also gave the anthem its definitive lyrics by poet Joaquim Osório Duque-Estrada.

 

In the lyrics of the Hino Nacional, the opening line's mention of the Ipiranga river refers to the stream near (and now part of) São Paulo, one of the world's biggest cities, where Prince Dom Pedro, future Emperor Dom Pedro I of Brazil, declared Brazil's independence from Portugal.

 

Brazilian Symphony Orchestra will be performing the anthem. Founded in 1940, is the most traditional symphonic ensemble of Brazil, the first Brazilian orchestra to perform tours (abroad or nationwide) and give open-air performances and concerts for audience development.

 

Please stand for the National Anthem of Brazil!

Music of Brazil encompasses various regional musical styles influenced by African, European and Amerindian forms. The first registration of musical activity in Brazil comes from the activities of Jesuit priests in 1549. Years later, they had already founded settlements for indigenous people - with a musical-educational structure.

 

The centuries that followed, there was intense musical activity in all the more developed regions of Brazil. In the second part of the 18th century, there was great flourishing in the state of Minas Gerais, mostly in the regions of Vila Rica, currently Ouro Preto, and Mariana - where the mining of gold and diamonds for the Portuguese metropolis attracted a sizable population. At that time, the first outstanding Brazilian composers were revealed, and in Ouro Preto about 250 musicians were active.

 

To this day Ouro Pretro still has great influence in the brazilian classical scene thanks to its Orchestra. Here, they will perform Toada, a beautiful composition by Capiba, and also a tribute to the beautiful city from Minas Gerais state and the people who changed the face of music in Brazil.
