- Classical:NEXT 2017
Ana Laura Freitas is a Brazilian musical journalist. She works at Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul radio station (www.ufrgs.br/radio), the only vehicle focused on classical music in southern Brazil.
Freitas has also worked at Porto Alegre Symphony Orchestra between 2012 and 2014. Currently, she is responsible for "Desconcerto", a project that takes live classical music to informal places, such as bars, in Porto Alegre (www.facebook.com/projetodesconcerto).
In her master's research, concluded at Post-Graduate Programme in Communication and Information at Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul in 2011, Freitas studied the musical criticism of Herbert Caro on his column "Os melhores discos clássicos" ("The best classical records"), published weekly for more than twenty years in Rio Grande do Sul. She analysed how Caro explored the journalistic space to translate the codes of classical music to the naïve listeners and to stimulate the contact.
