The Enderrock Awards pay tribute to the twenty years since L’Auditori opened

This morning, at the Antiga Fàbrica Damm (Old Damm Brewery), saw the celebration of the ‎‎Enderrock Awards 2020, which honoured L'Auditori for its two decades of ‎history.‎

L'Auditori’s director, Robert Brufau, collected the award on behalf of the ‎institution and explained that “20 years has permitted us to consolidate a project ‎that currently produces and programmes more than 500 concerts each season, ‎brings together half a million people of all ages and offers activities for ‎‎250,000 children, working with more than 1,000 schools around Catalonia".‎

The Enderrock Group recognised the significance of the fact that on "its ‎‎20th anniversary, L’Auditori de Barcelona is the home of the Barcelona Symphony ‎Orchestra, the Barcelona Symphony Band, Catalonia College of Music (ESMUC) and the ‎Museu de la Música. But, after twenty years as a public facility, it has also been a ‎‎stage for hundreds of musicians. It is an impeccable space, both ‎acoustically and visually, which, in 2007, was the first concert hall in Spain to become ‎a member of the European Concert Hall Organisation, the most prestigious ‎association of music venues in Europe. In addition to this, the classical and modern music ‎programme is completed with an educational service for all sections of society”.‎

Along with L'Auditori, the Enderrock Awards honoured the record labels ‎‎Gandula (10 years) and Kasba Music (15 years) and the ‎music venues the Liceu (20 years since its reopening), Cafè ‎Slàvia (25 years) and Jazzman (40 years). The Catalunya Ràdio ‎programme "Mans" (15 years), the festival Guitar BCN ‎‎(30 years), the company Alter Sinergies (15 years) and the cultural ‎platform Lapsus (15 years) will also receive recognition.‎
