    Program

    A city’s annual festival always brings out its most local and defining culture, that which most ‎deeply connects people to a particular place. Barcelona Symphony Band now wants to bring ‎us closer to this music specific to different peoples with very different perspectives as ‎testimony to the great treasure of traditional music. Cuba, Mexico, Colombia, Bulgaria, ‎eastern music and Catalonia’s own sardanas will all take us on a journey of sound to various ‎places in the special time in which we are currently living, where physical distance has not ‎resulted in social distance. Music may be one of the best tools we have to help us ‎understand each other and think about the future. It’s party time: Let’s have fun!‎
    José R. Pascual-Vilaplana
