Dear Sirs, Following the suggestion of the Embassy of Nederland we would like to inform you that he Municipality of Figueira da Foz, in Portugal, will hold the 31th Little Singers’ International Gala, on July 14th, in the Centro de Artes e Espectáculos da Figueira da Foz. The Little Singers’ International Gala, a pioneer initiative, was born in September 1979 and, since then, has fulfilled its purposes: to promote and produce songs suitable for children and performed by them; to promote “Children’s’ Rights” and non-profit institutions for the benefit of children; to stimulate the love for music in children and to create ties of friendship among nations, regardless of race, colour, religion, sex or social background. Figueira da Foz, over these 30 years and through the Little Singers’ International Gala, has had the privilege of receiving more than 440 participants, from Portugal and 40 foreign countries in Europe, America, Africa and Asia. We would be honoured if this year we could have a child representing Netherland, aged between 5 and 10 years, to participate with a song characteristic of your country, so we appreciate your cooperation, advertising the event, amongst your contacts and eventually in your facebook. The organization of the Little Singers Gala will deliver a single contribution of 400 € per song, for foreign competitor’s resident in Portugal (to help with the costs of accommodation and meals of the participant and escort) or 700 € per song, for foreign competitor’s resident abroad (400 € to help with the costs of accommodation and meals of the participant and escort and 300 € to help with transport costs). Best regards Ana Vaz Pinto Divisão de Cultura
