Tomorrow, will see the Sant Sebastià beach in Barcelona as the setting for the streamed concert to Europe by the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra, which it performed there on 30 June 2018.
The streaming will take place simultaneously on the Facebook pages of the leading concert halls in Europe thanks to the project Music of the Day from Europe’s Concert Halls, launched by ECHO with the aim of giving the general public the opportunity to enjoy music whilst venues are closed.
The 2018 beach concert attracted some 14,000 people and was conducted by Álvaro Albiach performing music such as Somewhere from Bernstein’s West Side Story, Cuban Overture by George Gershwin, The Nutcracker by Tchaikovsky, Mont Juic by Britten and the Sombrero de tres picos by Manuel de Falla, along with others.
Since the launch of Music of the Day from Europe’s Concert Halls, L'Auditori has streamed spectacular concerts such as the one from the Sagrada Família that introduced us to Kazushi Ono as principal conductor of the OBC, as well as a selection of other symphonic and jazz pieces.
Amongst the seventeen concert halls participating in the project is the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, the Wiener Konzerthaus in Vienna, Het Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Konserthuset in Stockholm, the BOZAR in Brussels, the Town Hall and Symphony Hall in Birmingham, the Müpa in Budapest, the Konzerthaus in Dortmund and the Palau de la Música Catalana.
