The last two weeks were intense of music where we had two high school chamber and string orchestras and an excellent college choir on tour with concerts in Avila, Segovia, Barcelona, Cantabria, Sevilla, Granada, Málaga, Zaragoza…. with large audiences and ovations, where the high -schoolers met their mates in small and large cities and shared their music and FB´s with them, where they visited local guitar makers workshops, where hey enjoyed our flamenco music, learned about the different types of flamenco and the difference between a flamenco and a “flamingo”.
Also enjoyed and learned about our country, rich history , monuments, landscapes, food and people they met along their concert tours. Here are some pics I would love to share of all these special moments we had together. Thanks a lot to all our partners and our local friends and supporters, our drivers, our backline staff, all venues and all the warm audiences
The Wagner Choir sang in beautiful churches and in front of warm audiences in the cities of Madrid, Alcala, Sevilla, Granada and Malaga and shared their music with over + 1500 people.
The Leones de Chicago, a high school from the Chicago suburban area, played four concerts in completely different venues and in front of over +1500 people as well.
Their educational concert tour brought them to play in a local school in the medieval city of Avila, inside a beautiful neoclassical basilica in the heart of Old Madrid, in the Auditorio de Zaragoza, consider among the most beautiful in Europe in front of +900 people and in a local conservatory near Barcelona where they enjoyed a welcoming reception with the local orchestra members ,listened them playing with a local soprano and had lots of fun
