On Saturday June 22nd 2002 the performance of the Students of the 1° Course of Launeddas was held in Sanluri. The performance which took place in the Hall of the Convent of the Capuchin Friars was carried out by 25 boys and girls attending the Istituto Comprensivo Statale, aged from 10 to 14 years old.
The Course, promoted by Rosangela Vinci, who teaches music in this School, in collaboration with the association Cuncordia a Launeddas, was sponsored by the Sanluri Town Council.
The young pupils, under the guide of the members of the association, particularly that of Giulio Pala and of Roberto Tangianu, performed the exercises and the pieces learned during the five-month course.
The success of the short concert was considerable both for the results achieved in such a short time and for the constancy with which these young people attended the lessons.
The greater number of girls with respect to boys was significant. The girls have shown a passion for this instrument that formerly has never been of much interest to women.
The event ended with the promise to organise a second course in the following year for those who attended the first one and a new course for beginners.
