The assessment committee, whose members were unanimous in choosing Alomar, drew ‎special attention to his submitted proposal, which fits in completely with the current ‎objectives of L'Auditori's artistic strategy.

In the committee's opinion, he has demonstrated the necessary ‎skills for the post: strategic vision, a capacity to put strategies into action to achieve the ‎necessary goals, leadership, effective communication, and flexibility.‎
