L’Auditori joins TV3’s La Marató programme with concerts by the OBC and the Barcelona ‎Symphony Band and the premiere of a documentary

L’Auditori will be taking part in the 30th anniversary of La Marató with ‎‎three concerts and the preview of the documentary “Música, la Medecina de ‎l'Ànima” (Music, Medicine for the Soul). These activities will help raise funds ‎through the various donation points that will be distributed throughout L’Auditori.‎

The programme, performed by the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra on ‎‎18 and 19 December, will feature conductor Anja ‎Bihlmaier, who returns to lead the OBC, and clarinettist Pablo Barragán, ‎who will perform the Clarinet Concerto by Carl Nielsen. The ‎two evenings will be completed with the Second Symphony by Sibelius ‎and Liguria by composer Andrea Tarrodi. ‎

The Barcelona Symphony Band will participate in La Marató with its ‎‎Christmas Concert (19 December), a spectacular event featuring ‎‎Coral Carmina and Coral Sant Jordi, conducted by José R. Pascual-‎Vilaplana, and with music by Camille Saint-Saëns and John ‎Rutter.‎

Finally, at 6 pm on 15 December, Sala 2 Oriol Martorell will be screening ‎the premiere of the documentary “Música, la Medecina de l'Ànima”, by Ferran ‎Llagostera. The documentary was made with the collaboration of ‎L’Auditori and the participation of various groups and personalities such as ‎‎Jordi Savall. It aims to show, in a human, heartfelt, respectful and ‎entertaining way, how music, through music therapy, can enhance mental ‎wellbeing, awaken emotions, give pleasure and sweeten and improve people’s quality of life.‎

“ Música, la Medecina de l'Ànima” will be presented by its director, ‎‎Ferran Llagostera and will feature the composer and sound therapist ‎‎José Manuel Pagán, who provided guidance during the documentary, and ‎‎Ulrich Bosch, from the Heidehof Stiftung Foundation. The documentary ‎will be followed by a performance by the music therapy students of the special ‎education centres Estimia-El Niu and Moragas.‎
