Back on the beach with the OBC

The Barcelona Symphony Orchestra will be playing pieces by Bernstein, Gershwin and Tchaikovsky, among other composers.

As summer begins, the OBC orchestra gets ready once again to eschew its usual haunts and head for the beach to play a selection of music ranging from classical music to tunes from musicals as the sun sets over Sant Sebastià beach in Barcelona. The free beach concert this year will take place on 30 June at 9pm and will be conducted by Álvaro Albiach.

Saving last minutes changes to the programme, the recital will start with exerts from West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein, Gershwin’s Cuban Overture and Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker and Waltz of the Flowers. The OBC will continue with pieces by Saint-Saëns, Delibes and Britten. Falla’s The Three-Cornered Hat and Final Dance will bring to a close a concert that’s suitable for the whole family.

The concert stage will be set up on Sant Sebastià beach, in front of Hotel W Barcelona. Additional information is available at the following link.
