    Program

    The Banda de la Associació Musical SYMPHOCAT (SYMPHOCAT Music Association Band) will ‎open the Festival with a series of key pieces from the Jazz, Swing, Bossa nova, orchestral and ‎classical music genres. ‎

    The Banda de l’Agrupació Musical L’Emburgada del Perelló (L’Emburgada Music Association ‎Band from El Perelló) will present a performance ranging from the chords of pasodobles, ‎passing through a powerful and brilliant fanfare, symphonic works for Concert Band and a ‎sardana, demonstrating the versatility of these music ensembles.‎

    The Banda de la Unió Musical de Tarragona – BUMT (Tarragona Music Union Band – BUMT) ‎offers us the most traditional Concert Band music sounds with the pasodoble, subsequently ‎moving on to an impressive symphony by Robert W. Smith. The composer studied Dante and ‎the Divine Comedy, and, in particular, the Odyssey, which lends its name to this symphony ‎that contains a total of four movements, each of which is noteworthy for having an intricate ‎and imaginative structure of percussive and wind effects. The movements are: I. The Iliad; II. ‎The Winds of Poseidon; III. The Isle of Calypso; IV. Ithaca. In short, a musical Odyssey through ‎Greece.‎
