    With Christmas just around the corner, José R. Pascual Vilaplana presents us with a wonderfully diverse concert, with festive and joyful elements but which does not overlook the music that encourages us to reflect. It will include our traditional Christmas melodies, music for the Cavalcade of the Three Kings and international Christmas songs.

    Program

    There will also be two works with narration: the first will have texts by Herman Melville, the author of Moby Dick, the classic adventure chronicling the search for the legendary white whale; and the second, a poem written by Tali, a thirteen-year-old Israeli girl, who reflects on the conflict with Palestine and tries to explain things that a child like her is still unable to fully comprehend. The music, in both instances, will accompany us in a lyrical but also in a disquieting way, to pull us deeper into the poetry of words that are calling for peace.
