Educational project

Impact to interest, experience to feel and learn to love music

The L'Auditori Educational Project was born in 2000 and, since then, has promoted spaces for exchange, revitalization and renewal of music education in Catalonia. It offers different lines of action, such as family concerts, school concerts, training for parents and teachers, participatory concerts, activities at the Music Museum, etc.

Each year around 70 musical training sessions are held for 10,000 people and nearly 80 participatory activities aimed at schoolchildren aged 1 to 18, music schools, children's choirs, music professionals, pedagogy professionals, families, disadvantaged groups and the general public. Each season around 800 activities are scheduled that bring together 200,000 attendees both inside and outside the l'Auditori.

FAMILY CONCERTS

Each season we offer a program of up to 26 concerts different for families with girls and boys of all ages, with more than 90 sessions throughout the year. Each concert is tailored to children. A team of pedagogues, composers, musicians, choreographers and stage managers work to make their first musical experience unique and special.
Children aged 1 or over must have a ticket to attend Family Concerts. All adults and children must have a ticket to attend Workshops for Kids and Concerts for Babies.

Workshops and previous talks

At L'Auditori we also offer the possibility to prepare for the concert for families with girls and boys up to 5 years old with the family workshops. In these workshops, the music of the concert you will come to see is worked on with suggestions and proposals to continue enjoying the music at home. A few days before the activity, registered families receive a dossier that allows them to prepare the contents. Each workshop is related to one or more specific sessions, after which there will be an exclusive meeting with the musicians for the families who have taken the workshop.

In the case of concerts for families with children aged 5 and over, you can always access the free preliminary talks which take place in the same concert hall one hour before. These talks will bring us closer to the concert that we will see next.

Relatives IN THE PLAY L'AUDITORI

On the L'Auditori Play digital platform, we offer web albums of the family shows of the L'Auditori educational project, with audios, explanatory texts, lyrics, illustrations created specifically for each project, and audios of all the musical pieces to experience the interactive show. We also film some family projects to relive the concert experience from home.

SCHOOL CONCERTS

DISCOVERING THE MAGIC OF LIVE MUSIC

More than 80,000 schoolchildren from all over Catalonia have passed through L'Auditori to discover the magic of live music. For more than 20 years, L'Auditori has been working on the creation of educational projects. Every year we premiere new concerts of our own production, accompanied by didactic materials and training to support teachers in working with music in the classroom.

The l'Auditori is a benchmark for the educational group of ECHO (European Concert Hall Organization) and ROCE (Network of Educational Concert Organizers). Many of our projects have been exported to European countries and Latin America.

REGISTRATIONS

On June 27 at 8 a.m. we open the registration period for the School Concerts for the 24/25 season. You can make reservations through the website www.lacultivadora.cat.

CANTÀNIA

Education through A PATH OF MUSIC, CULTURE AND EMOTION

In the 1989-1990 school year, Cantània was born from the will of the music teachers from the 9 municipal schools in Barcelona to do some joint activity. In 1997, all the schools in the city were added. The success was such that in 2002 it began to be implemented in other cities in Catalonia and, in 2005, it began to grow around the world.

A participatory activity

Cantània is a participatory activity aimed at middle and upper primary school students. Every season a new work is commissioned, for a large choir of boys and girls, from renowned Catalan composers and writers. Throughout the school year, work is done both from the l'Auditori and from the school. The aim is to organize an event for the students that, due to the global features designed exclusively for them, for the quality and for the personal and collective involvement in the event, becomes an unforgettable musical experience for all.

MORE THAN 50,000 BOYS AND GIRLS EVERY YEAR

To date, Cantania has been performed in more than 20 cities in 6 countries, both European and American. In Spain: Argentona, Burgos, Cádiz, El Vendrell, Figueres, Girona, Granollers, Madrid, Manresa, Mataró, Olot, Parla, Reus, Salamanca, Sant Cugat del Vallès, Zaragoza, Seville, Valladolid, Vic and Vilafranca del Penedès. In Germany: Mainz, Bremen, Biefeld, Neustadt and Koblenz. In Belgium: Brussels. In Portugal: Guimaraes. In Venezuela: Caracas. In Italy: Alexandria. And in Mexico. Over the course of a school year, approximately 50,000 children, 1,000 music teachers from more than 1,000 schools and 100,000 spectators take to the stages in all the participating cities.

TRAINING SESSIONS IN THE L'AUDITORI

The teaching staff attend three training sessions in the l'Auditori, where they are given the necessary tools to do the work in the classroom with the students. The project ends with a concert in Sala 1 Pau Casals of the l'Auditori, where all the registered schools participate together, accompanied live by professional musicians and actors.

CANTÀNIA AT THE PLAY L'AUDITORI

On the L'Auditori Play digital platform, music teachers have web albums with all the materials needed to prepare the Cantània interactively: texts, audios with all the vocal parts, instrumental audios to sing with the students, vocal scores , sheet music for voice and piano, video tutorials to learn the choreographies and various teaching files and didactic materials.

COMPOSERS ENTER THE CLASSROOM

THE NEW MUSICAL CREATION FOR LITTLE CHILDREN

The composers enter the classroom is a project of the Institute of Education Sciences of the UAB and the Educational Project of L'Auditori and it brings contemporary music to Primary students through audition and musical creation, and counting always with the in-person contribution of current female composers. The project, started in the 2014-15 academic year, has included composers such as Agustí Charles, Ramon Humet, Josep M. Guix, Héctor Parra, Oliver Rappoport, Carlos de Castellarnau, Pablo Carrascosa, Bernat Vivancos, Raquel Garcia Tomás, Joan Magrané, Octavi Rumbau, Fabiano Santkovsky, Núria Giménez, Enric Palomar, Itziar Viloria and Fritz Hauser.‎ The project wants to facilitate boys and girls in the collective creation of a work of art, a journey that leads children to learn music through the process of elaboration and performance in public of his own compositions.‎

CREATE FROM LISTENING - PROJECT STAGES

  • The project starts from a selection of works by current composers linked to the Sampler Series program and the development of didactic proposals to work in the classroom.
  • The training of the teachers who carry out the experience extends throughout the development of the project. Each of the teachers works with a single work.
  • The task in the classroom begins with the listening and analysis of the work, then continues with the creation by the boys and girls of small compositions mirrored in the musical features of the pieces studied.
  • Aquestes produccions seran presentades al compositor el dia que assisteixi a l’aula, el qual els donarà indicacions i suggeriments per millorar-les.
  • In the subsequent sessions, the students will discuss them, put them into practice and rehearse them to interpret them. Finally, the works will be presented in concerts in the l'Auditori attended by students from different participating schools.
