The Festival Llums d'Antiga ends its second edition featuring six outstanding concerts to great public ‎acclaim

The second edition of the Festival Llums d'Antiga, organised by ‎L'Auditori in various historical locations around the city of Barcelona, drew to a close ‎on Sunday with a concert by soprano María Espada and La Real Cámara. ‎
Between 4 and 16 February, the Festival welcomed 1,200 spectators over the six ‎concerts and enjoyed an average attendance rate of 83.6%, 3.6% higher than last ‎year. ‎

The Festival opened with Ensemble O Vos Omnes, followed by concerts ‎from Graindelavoix, El Gran Teatro del Mundo, Justin Taylor, Sollazzo Ensemble and ‎María Espada. These took place at L'Auditori, the ‎‎Basílica de Santa Maria del Pi, the Capella de Santa Àgata and the Monestir de Sant ‎Pau del Camp, with the final four being sell outs.‎

This year, the Festival Llums d'Antiga continued the spirit of bringing repertoires and ‎performers to audiences outside conventional concert halls. Under the title ‎‎“Freedom. Between Chaos and Order”, it was staged within the ‎‎250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven, the figure that ‎has been the starting point for exploring the idea of personal and artistic freedom.‎

Amongst the various historic venues that hosted the concerts, mention should be made of ‎the inclusion, for the first time, of the Monestir de Sant Pau del Camp.‎

Now, the Festival Llums d'Antiga makes way for the Festival Emergents ‎Barcelona, L'Auditori’s celebrated date with new local and international ‎talent where, from 8 to 17 March, 200 artists will perform 20 concerts over ‎‎10 days.‎
