Canta Gran is a programme stemming directly from Barcelona Town Council's 2002 social ‎welfare policies. Its aim is to increase the active role of the elderly and to enable them to ‎participate fully in society. This activity is intended to form part of a further cycle of personal ‎growth and quality of life, adding “life to years rather than just years to life”. The project has ‎successfully put choirs of elderly people in the foreground in all participating cities.‎

Registration is for free.

MARE NOSTRUM

A gentle breeze, the scent of pine and the fragrance of rosemary, a calm sea, beaches, a ‎flock of swallows swooping across the sky and sun... Songs infused with the perfumes of the ‎Mediterranean will take you on a voyage across the sea.‎
Visit the crystalline Greek waters, trek the Syrian Desert, sip an Algerian mint tea, stroll ‎through Italy's Tuscany and be carried away by all the riches that Mare Nostrum affords us...‎
A fabulous opportunity to discover the different musical textures the Mediterranean has to ‎offer.‎
