The first part of the year runned very fast with lots of music and production and immediately we continued with the second half of it. We had the priviledge to tour with the Viterbo University Choir with amazing performances in Setubal, Sevilla, Granada where under the Andalucia Music festival they performed in the TownHall Square and their finaal concert in Alcalá de Henares cathedral. It was an excellent performance tour. The Handbell Ringers Intssrnational is a international handbell group that uses to meet in one country and after some rehearsals, they tour togethr. This year they chose Spain and they met in Barcelona for their first concert before ccoming to Central Spain where they performed in the celebrations for the Cathedral of Burgos, in the Cathedral of Salamanca and in Segovia. They came from different countries such as Puerto Rico, Canada, U.S, England, germany, switzerland or Estonia. It was an amazing experience as the majority of the spanish audiences never heard a handbell choir before. We continued this season with Mira Costa Orchestra, a high school very talented symphony orchestra which did an amazing tour and that received incredible reviews and outstnding ovations every concert. They performed in some of the most beautiful venues such as the Palau de la Musica in Valencia or the final concert at the Palau de la Musica in Barcelona which was one the the highlights of this tour. We received two other groups that came for few days and two performances each in Central Spain, one was the Youth Singers of Calgary, one of the best show choirs in North America and the Caleb Chapman Soundhouse Jazz ensembles: The Inevitables and the Soul Foundation who performed as part of two summer festivals in central Spain. Then at the gates of August the Nationaol Youtyh Orchestra of Canada came on tour performing at the Summer festival of El Escorial, then in Alicante as part of the Internaational Youth Orchestra festival and the final concert in Granada at the Alhambra closing the International Guitar Festival with Jose Miguel Moreno, where they played Vivaldi suites , Manuel de Falla and Prokofiev. In Alicante they performed at the ADDA Auditorium and in Teulada Auditorium. Almost at the same time we were sponsoring for our forth year the Pueblos Blancos Music Festival in the mountains of Andalusia, where we had over 100 musicians and 25 bands coming for all corners of this small world to play jazz, rock, country and americana styles. A festival that was created following a dream that we will talk in another post. Wishing you a wonderful summertime and a succesful great second part of this year and willing to hear from any music ensemble interested to perform next time in Spain. We would love to help you anytime ! Muchas gracias ! for this fantastic seson

I had not much time to write in our blog and I do not want any visitor who will feel that there is nothing else to say. 2019 had been running fast since it started right after Christmas with some inspection trips through Spain and Portugal as always, then some trips to music trade shows and conferences in the U.S and then the concert season that this year started in early March. We did for first time a performance ensemble who played world music from Texas which came with a string orchestra and a drum section who performed two concerts in Andalusia, one in Salamanca and the final one in Madrid. Over 2000 people attended to their four concerts and people enjoyed their music a lot.
We had the privilege again to collaborate with Witte Travel and with the UNiversity of Northern Iowa, its Concert Choir and with John Len Wiles. Every time John visted us in Spain he brought a unique repertoire that include works of Shaina Taub. John Work, Carl Heinrich Graun, Paul Christiansen, Brahms, Jacob Neverud or the basque composers Javier Busto or Josu Elberdin. The light the choir brought to all audiences during their concerts was memorable.
May was a choral month, where we had the priviledge to tour with the Viterbo University and the Nebraska Wesleyan Choirs. Viterbo performed in Lisbon, Seville, Granada and Madrid.
The Nebraska Wesleyan Choir under the direction of Dr. Willian Wyman performed in Barcelona,Valencia, Guadix, Granada and Malaga. An intense week of concerts and music following the Mediterranean coast
The second part of this calendar will start in less than two weeks. We are proud to say that for first time, the Handbell Ringers International, an international association and choir created by different musicians/members from different nations, chose Spain for their concert tour and will be touring for the first time. There is a big expectation as this will be probably the first time that a handbell choir of this characteristics had come to Spain to perform. Among the concerts that they will play is the concert at the Cathedral of Burgos that it is celebrating its VIII centenary anniversary.
We promisse to be back soon with lots of musical news and updates for the next IVth edition of Pueblos Blancos Music Festival down in Malaga mountains this summer
